Cambridge Early Music Concerts 2012

ORPHEUS, I AM

Joel Frederiksen (bass, lute, archlute)

2.00pm, Sunday 20 May, 2012
McCrum Theatre, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge
Tickets:  £15.00,  £10.00
 
The American basso profundo accompanies himself on the lute and archlute in songs by Dowland, Willaert, Marini, Johnson, Attaignant and Caccini.
Joel Frederiksen has a busy international solo career in opera and oratorio with the likes of Paul O'Dette and Jordi Savall, as well as in smaller-scale period performance.
"Frederiksen is at the moment the only singer to master the art of self-accompanying to the lute at the highest level. He has at his disposal an astonishing range of vocal registers and styles. The most impressive were the big, theatrical monodies of Caccini: easily over two and a half octaves, virtuosically ornamented and with powerful diction... truly amazing." - Donaukurier
