Richard Mackenzie is a celebrated virtuoso on the renaissance and baroque lutes, renaissance and baroque guitars, vihuela, orpharion and theorbo. In this concert he will be playing theorbo (an unfeasibly large lute ! ). It's too long since Richard has been with us at the Nordic (2018) and so we are so pleased to have the maestro back playing a repertoire of early music from three city states: Rome, Venice and Modena.
We are so overjoyed to be able to bring back the sublime Isabel Williamson on cello and the enigmatic Jonathan Ellis on piano playing master works by Brahms, Beethoven, Kodaly and Arvo Pärt. A return to our chamber music roots which showcase the incredible acoustics of the octagonal Nordic chapel.
An evening of master works featuring the bad-boys of the chamber music world Duncan Reid (violin) and Jonathan Ellis (piano) ... the boys are back in town ... keep your daughters locked up !
