St Mary's Church, Totnes
This concert is part of the Totnes Early Music Society Season 2018/19. Music for shawms, dulcians, oboes and bassoons from this outstanding wind band, a guaranteed good night!
From 14th-18th century, wind music could be heard everywhere from grand state occasions to the humblest village dance. Syrinx aim to 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 acclaim for their first album, The Saxon Alternative. Members play with leading period orchestras including the Academy of Ancient Music, The OAE, and the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, and in ensembles such as I Fagiolini, Mediva, Blondel and Concentus VII. Guaranteed to be a fun evening with a mix of sounds from the raucous to the refined!
