Welcome to Latitude 37's 2024 concert season. We're thrilled to be teaming up with Australian Digital Concert Hall this year to bring you two beautiful performances that you can join us for either in person or livestreamed straight to your living room, anywhere in the world.
This year we begin with Imitatio, a programme full of music rich in invention, innovation and vibrancy. The 17th century was the birthplace of instrumental music as an artform in its own right, and virtuoso player-composers such as Heinrich Biber, Dietrich Buxtehude and Johann Schmelzer left a legacy of sonatas revelling in the possibilities of the violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord.
Concert 2 La Chemise Blanche takes us to Paris - a hotbed of musical creativity for centuries, home to extremes of elegance, formality, whimsy and eccentricity. We've crafted an immersive hour to bring Paris to The Eleventh Hour Theatre in Fitzroy, with sophisticated music by François Couperin, Marin Marais and Jean-Féry Rebel, interspersed with some Parisian surprises!
