The Marais Project

Baroque Songs & Interludes

For more than 20 years The Marais Project has presented fine music for the viola da gamba - the instrument so often compared to the human voice. In this concert artistic director Jenny Eriksson embarks on a musical tour of Europe featuring songs and instrumental works from five countries. In addition, the ensemble will premiere “Christchurch Monody” by Australian composer Gordon Kerry which was written as a response to the recent gun massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand.
