'Kenny’s lute solos had an intimacy, and Fretwork’s sound a plangency, which ideally set off Bostridge’s art.' The Independent
Viol ensemble Fretwork is joined by leading British tenor, Ian Bostridge and lutenist Elizabeth Kenny for a special concert of music by Tudor composer and lutenist John Dowland.
Passionate, poetic and heartbreakingly beautiful, Dowland’s music speaks to us today as clearly as it ever did. His distilled melancholy is at the beating heart of early music repertoire infusing the contemporary culture of musicians such as Sting and Elvis Costello.
