Early Music Concerts 2011-2012: (UK) The English Concert: An Intimate Musical Evening With Our Principal Lutenist William Carter (Concert: 15 nov 2011)

Contributed by Admin on Oct 14, 2011

“We are delighted to be returning to Sir Vernon & Lady Ellis's home at 49 Queen's Gate Terrace, London, SW7, for an intimate musical evening with our principal lutenist William Carter on Tuesday
15 November.

As many will know, we have visited 49 Queen's Gate Terrace on three previous occasions, one with recorder virtuoso Maurice Steger, another with soprano Lucy Crowe, and a third to help celebrate Vernon's birthday in 2010. It is a wonderful venue for engaging with outstanding artists at close quarters.

William is not only an internationally renowned exponent of the lute and other early plucked instruments, but is also an engaging, witty and erudite speaker.  He will be playing music by J S Bach and will give us some special insights into both the strikingly beautiful instruments he wields and the wonderful music he plays on them.“
