Event 10: Paul O'Dette

Sunday 7 July 10:00pm

Adults £17.00 | Concessions £15.00


Dowland's Grand Tour

Dowland was intensely interested in the music of his contemporaries, both in England and on the continent. An apprenticeship spent in Paris was later followed by a grand tour of Europe during which he came into contact with important composers, singers and lutenists whose music he borrowed and imitated in his own works. Paul O'Dette's programme traces Dowland''s travels, presenting the music he might have heard on his trip including works by John Johnson, Jacques Polonais, Gregory Huwet, Melchior Neusidler, Simone Molinaro and Dowland himself.

"O'Dette's mastery of the instrument..is already the stuff of legend.” Boston Globe
