An Enlightened Heart
- This event has passed.
With the inclusion of new pieces for early instruments commissioned by group members from young female composers (Jenni Pinnock and Rebecca Rowe) connect with the developing tradition of female composers today.
We aim to raise awareness of the music, and the difficult position women had as independent composers, multi-instrumentalists and singers in the age of the enlightenment.
The quartet features the young recorder player Kate Allsop who recently completed her graduate studies at the Birmingham Conservatoire gaining a first and winning the course prize. Kate is joined by the seasoned performers Sara Stowe (harpsichordist and singer), Ibi Azziz (viol) and Matthew Spring (lutes and viols).
