The Lute Family: A Lecture/Recital by Lynda Sayce ~ a history of the lute

May 24, 2019 at 6:30 pm

£5 – £10

BEMP SPRING FESTIVAL: Lynda Sayce will bring a number of her favourite examples of members of the lute family to share in her ‘lute roadshow’, offering a history of the instrument, illustrated with 10 or so different and contrasting lutes covering almost a millennium’s worth of music. Each instrument will be described in its historical context and Lynda will then play each one so the audience sees and hears a huge variety of music ranging from a maqam on an Arabic oud to an excerpt from a high baroque suite. Each instrument is chosen with great care so that they make a stunning visual display, ranging from a tiny soprano lute to a 2 metre theorbo.
