Double, Double, Toil & Trouble

Double, Double, Toil & Trouble

Described as ‘Early Music’s very own Spice Girls’, the vibrant recorder quartet Palisander will present its ‘Double, Double, Toil & Trouble’ programme.

A programme exploring the theme ‘magic and music’, with repertoire spanning 900 years performed on recorders ranging from 6 inches to 6 feet tall. Palisander employ its signature blend of spoken word, poetry and singing, with movement and choreography for a unique concert presentation.

The intrinsic links between music and magic have been recognised throughout time, with Plato, Galileo & Pythagoras all writing on this subject. This programme includes music reflecting the Renaissance concept of the Three Magics; songs used to spread word of witchcraft; melodies sent through dreams by supernatural beings; new compositions inspired by the ancient concept of Music and the Spheres; and music inspired by humanity’s fascination with the mystical and magical.

Composers include: J.S. Bach, Tartini, Sweelinck, Hildegard von Bingen and new commissions based on historical mathematical calculations.
