Musicke in the Ayre
Join early music ensemble Musicke in the Ayre as they continue their recital series in the Charterhouse Chapel, this time featuring women composers from the early Italian Baroque. Belgian-born soprano Marie Lemaire will be accompanied by lutenist/luthier Din Ghani on an archlute and baroque guitar, both made by him. They plan to showcase the talents of Francesca Caccini, Barbara Strozzi and Lucrezia Orsina Vizzana – talents that enabled their works to emerge beyond the confines of convent and courtly cloisters. The programme also includes a few examples of works by some of their teachers/influencers, including Cavalli and Monteverdi. Tickets £12 on the door or £11 online.
