Ensemble Revelare: A Musical Tour of 18th-Century Europe
The concert will include a selection of stunning works for voice, recorder and basso continuo (harpsichord and cello) by eighteenth-century composers from England, Germany and Italy. Cantatas and arias are interspersed with instrumental pieces; various combinations of tonal colours within the group will be explored, all with a keen awareness of historical performance.
Ensemble Revelare, formed in 2018, brings together four musicians with a passion for baroque music and expertise in historical performance. The ensemble presents works by seventeenth and eighteenth-century composers, both familiar and lesser-known; many of whom have a connection to Ireland. Recent engagements include a concert at City Assembly Hall for the Irish Georgian Society, Kaleidoscope Night and a sold-out concert, which is part of the Drawing Room Series in Dublin.
Highlights next season include concerts at Clifden Arts Festival, Shorelines Arts Festival and Castletown House.
