We’ll present several beautiful 17th century German trio sonatas by Buxtehude and Becker – some of our best loved core repertoire – and blend these with music from Spain by Ortiz, Ribayaz and Cabanilles. We’re so looking forward to it!

Coming up on August 8, 7pm is the second of our Melbourne Recital Centre concerts for the year, and we are voyaging to mid-17th-century Europe, where the Barbarini family were bad, dangerous to know, and one of the most powerful families on the continent. From its ranks came patricians, a pope and a penchant for musical patronage that was on show both at home in Rome and in Parisian exile. Including works by Kapsberger, Galilei, Landi and Lambert, drawn from a world of luxury, excess and corruption, Exile is a seductive demonstration of the sort of music that can be bought when money is no object.
Wednesday May 30 saw Latitude 37 give a concert in the Ballroom at Melbourne’s Government House for Chamber Music Australia – a truly beautiful venue for a baroque concert. A big thank you to CMA for giving us such a special opportunity.
