Fretwork with Elizabeth Kenny, Lute
Friday, November 08, 2013
Leading European lutenist Elizabeth Kenny’s playing has been described as “incandescent,” “radical” and “indecently beautiful.” She joins the peerless British viol consort, Fretwork, for a program of music by English Renaissance composer, John Dowland, who was an inspiration for Benjamin Britten more than three centuries later. Dating from 1604, the Lachrimae is a collection of seven pavans and includes Dowland’s most famous lute solo.
