About Our 2020 Season
The Latitude 37 2020 Season features some of our favourite musical genres, with a particular focus on the 17th century, our musical heartland.
This year, we have invited our long-time collaborator, Simon Martyn-Ellis (theorbo) to join us with a tribute to the wonderful world of Kapsberger and the Secrets of Music. One of the most inventive and feted lutenists of all time, his music is timeless, and presented here with a back-drop of some of his contemporaries in Rome including Fontana and Falconieri.
From here, we travel to 17th century Venice viewed through the eyes of travelling musicians. A German in Venice, is an evocative illustration of the inspiration of Venice featuring the works by Krieger, Rosenmüller and Handel alongside their Venetian contemporaries Castello and Vivaldi.
Finally we put the organ front and centre in our stunning Meditations pr-ogram, a truly transporting musical experience, featuring adaptions of madrigals by Palestrina and works for organ and strings by Cavalli, Bassano, Buxtehude and Luke Howard.
Our 2020 season encompasses our usual 3-concert Melbourne season, around which we are expanding our touring schedule including a much anticipated series in Sydney this year and our return to Brisbane. In 2020, we offer two and three concert subscriptions in Melbourne, Beechworth, Canberra, Ballarat, the Mornington Peninsula and Sydney. Come and discover one of Australia's best-loved baroque trios live in concert in a city near you!
