Thoroughbass | Produzioni Armoniche
7 November 2021 @ 3:00 pm AEDT$40
Arias and Cantatas by Bembo and de la Guerre
Glorious music by two remarkable women – Antonia Bembo and Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre. From entirely different backgrounds, they both created a path for themselves in times when to do so as a woman was no piece of cake.
Thoroughbass presents Bembo’s Produzioni Armoniche, a collection she regarded as her finest, and de la Guerre’s cantata Le Sommeil d’Ulisse along with Marais’ famous Sonnerie and Rameau’s Concert V.
Soprano Anna Fraser is stunning in the roles of Juno and Pasithea and no less so as she regales the adventure of Ulysses in the aftermath of a life-threatening storm, She is supported by Thoroughbass’ ensemble of musicians.
