Double, Double, Toil & Trouble - The London International Festival of Early Music

6pm, Saturday 9th November 2019

Throughout the ages, music and magic have been intrinsically linked. In this programme Palisander explore music’s historic relationship with the wider magical spectrum: including elements of mathematics, philosophy, nature, religion and the occult. The repertoire varies from surviving 13th Century hymns to new compositions for the group based on surviving melodic fragments noted by Renaissance astronomers. Alongside composers such as Hildegard von Bingen, J.S. Bach and Anthony Holborne, the programme additionally includes exciting new arrangements created by Palisander of composers rarely heard on the recorder, such as Tartini. Palisander’s imaginative staging and presentation, combined with atmospheric employment of extended techniques, creates as magical experience for the audience!
