BLACK PENCIL's BEST

Beauty in movement, beauty in stillness

 

 

A new approach to music and undiscovered instrument combinations. The Elizabethan period fits Black Pencil like a glove: a paradise of experimentation for sound colour and tempo variation. This rich wealth of dances is complemented by the exuberant music of Vivaldi; popularity in a new form. To add light and shadow to this mix, we have included our successful arrangements of Bach’s Kunst der Fuge. An effective contrast for both the ears and the brain!

 

  • Music from the 16th, 17th and the 18th century (John Dowland, Thomas Morley, William Byrd, Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi)

  • Duration of the concert is 60 minutes (intermission possible)
