You Make me Feel Like Dancing

Monday 20th September 2021, 1.05pm

The natural impulse to move our body to music has been documented as far back as our ancestors' ancestors. Throughout history, humans have danced to celebrate, to heal, to bond, to entertain, to exercise and above all, for fun! In this programme, Palisander present bespoke sets of dances from history, using a huge array of recorders, from15cm to 2m in size, and including music spanning more than 1000 years. 

 

Alongside the premiere of the two winning pieces inspired by dance, as a part of the National Centre for Early Music & BBC Radio 3 Young Composer's Award 2021, you will hear exotic traditional dances of the Mediterranean; a historic Queen of England’s pre-breakfast dance work out, and even dances performed as a historical antidote to a spider’s poison!
