The Muffat Collective

Spretzzatura! Early Italian Baroque Songs & Sonatas

A Prelude in Tea Song Series Concert

After her sensational performance last year, sublime soprano Anna Sandstrӧm joins the Muffat Collective once more, as we present ‘Spretzzatura!’ A celebration of Monteverdi and Italian Baroque Songs on period instruments. Translated as "effortless mastery" Spretzzatura is “the true source of grace, revealed in the effortless resolution of all difficulties." Sandstrӧm will sing with Sprezzatura, popular Italian songs and madrigals from 17th century Italy, accompanied by virtuosic instrumental improvisations. This concert is a special opportunity to hear music sung by an expert in this captivating and emotionally charged music.

Anna Sandstrom (Soprano) & Matthew Manchester (Cornetto)

Music by: Montiverdi, Caccini, Peri and Rasi.

Adult $48, Concession and Under 30 $30, Student $22, Child $16

Includes afternoon tea

The Muffat Collective comprises four period instrument specialists that are extremely passionate about performing chamber music from the 17th and 18th century. All top graduates from The Royale Conservatoire of The Hague and Utrecht, the four members have returned to Australia after extensive experience playing with some of Europe's leading Baroque orchestras. The Collective would like to give you a genuine and moving experience by sharing with you incredibly rare and often unperformed works by forgotten masters; music that is full of vitality, energy and emotions that speak to us now, as much as they did in the past.
