Orpheus with his Lute description

Fabled for its ability to seduce gods and calm mad kings, the lute has long been bestowed with magical powers. On the rarely-heard vihuela da mano, and the elegant, long-necked theorbo, Norwegian Thomas Boysen gives us a glimpse into the lute’s world of sweet melancholy, playing renaissance miniatures by Judenkunig, le Roy, de Narvaez, and baroque counterpoint by de Visée, Piccinini, Pellegrini and de Murcia.


This Day Pass includes Enlightenment, this concert and A Brief Histoy of Time.
