Totnes Early Music Society – Syrinx


Event Date:

27th April


Overview

Blast from the Past –

From the 14th-18th century, wind music could be heard everywhere from grand state occasions to the humblest village dance. Syrinx recreate this impressive tradition playing shawms, dulcians, oboes and bassoons: their repertoire covers the rise of the professional wind band, with music from early anonymous masters, Dufay and Morley through to Handel and Telemann.

Syrinx received critical acclaim for their first album, The Saxon Alternative. Members of the group play with leading period orchestras including the Academy of Ancient Music, The Orchestra of the Age of enlightenment, and the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, and in ensembles such as I Fagiolini, Mediva, Blondel and Concentus VII.

The concert starts at 7.30pm at St. Mary’s Church in Totnes.

Advance tickets available from the Dartington Box Office (01803 847070), and website (boxoffice@dartington.org) £13, under 18s £5. On the door £14/£5.
