Dame Emma Kirkby, soprano
Time Stands Still: Music of John Dowland
Join legendary musicians Dame Emma Kirkby and Paul O’Dette as they celebrate the 450th anniversary of the birth of “The English Orpheus,” John Dowland. Both Kirkby and O’Dette have been renowned interpreters of this great master’s music for decades, and here they join forces on the BEMF concert stage for the very first time, offering a selection from Dowland’s four songbooks and A Musicall Banquet, interspersed with astonishing lute solos. This concert promises to be a journey of rediscovery for all!
