Early music explorers Liam Byrne and Jonas Nordberg test the boundaries between ornament and improvisation, in early baroque gems by Kapsberger, Marais, Sainte-Colombe and more.

The music of the late renaissance was meant to be experienced live: an exuberant celebration of the performers’ virtuosity, imagination and improvisational skill, in which no piece ever sounded the same twice. There’s a wonderful freedom and fantasy to this concert of instrumental music from early baroque Spain, France and Italy.

It’s a perfect showcase for two of the hottest and most inventive instrumentalists on the current early music scene. Gamba player Liam Byrne and lutenist Jonas Nordberg are 21st century artists with a profound understanding of an earlier age: sonic time travellers who bring the same insight, energy and expressive power to whatever they play. This should be magical.
