On the 18th of February at 17:00, in Raudondvaris Manor early music concert “The King’s Flutes: Early Tudor Court Music ” will take place. Henry VIII’s passion for singing, dancing and composing songs was well known during his reign. By the time of the King’s death in 1547, he had amassed an enormous collection of instruments, including over 70 transverse flutes. In this program, Phaedrus aims to bring the sound of Henry VIII’s flutes back to life, presenting a selection of music which might have been played by his instruments from the most beloved manuscripts which circulated in the English court during the king’s lifetime: courtly love songs, instrumental fantasies, and some of the earliest English dance tunes arranged for traverso consort.
Renaissance traverso consort:
Mara Winter, Darina Ablogina, Luis Martinez Pueyo
Renaissance lute and voice: Emma-Lisa Roux
Audience is required to wear respirators during the concert.
The event is organized by the project Historic Road: Raudondvaris-Bauska (LLI-498), which seeks to attract more tourists to Kaunas district and Bauska regions during the cold season by creating new artistic and cultural activities. This is already the forth concert from the early music concert series organized by Bauska Castle Museum in cooperation with Raudondvaris Manor. Concerts take place in both project partners venues and are for free.
