The Marais Project’s 2013 concert season kicks off with yet another Marais Project first: music by five of the great gamba composers of the French baroque – Marais, Couperin, Forqueray, Dolle and Caix D’Hervelois alongside music by a modern Australian composer – Rosalind Page.
Director of the Marais Project, gambist Jennifer Eriksson is fresh from her residency at the prestigious Banff Artists’ colony in Canada, undertaken earlier this year.
The concert will take you on a once only journey through the rarely heard solo bass viol repertoire from a fascinating era in music history. This will be complemented by the world premiere of Page’s new work. For this concert, the Marais Project wecomes back much loved master gambist Daniel Yeadon.
Jennifer Eriksson & Daniel Yeadon – viola da gamba
Tommie Andersson – theorbo
Raymond Harvey – harpsichord
