Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht
Domkerk Utrecht, Utrecht, Netherlands
Based on testimonies from today’s refugees and migrants, these new poems about displacement and exile present a contemporary and deeply moving counterpoint to this exquisite music; Dowland was himself no stranger to uncertainty and misfortune during his own, self-imposed exile. Between the pavans, London-based Syrian musician Rihab Azar intersperses partly improvised music for oud. The programme also includes White’s exquisite five-part Lamentations, and a new work by Giles Swayne written especially for these performers.
