An Afternoon of Baroque Music with Ensemble Pompadour

Christ Church Concerts

Our next concert will be a change of pace with Ensemble PompadourLaura Vaughan and Simon Rickard playing viola da gamba and baroque musette. Music from the court of Versailles played on a baroque musette, the smallest bagpipe.

Laura Vaughan and Simon Rickard are two of Australia’s leading exponents of baroque music. They share a particular love for the French baroque, and for weird and wonderful historical instruments – the more exotic the better. The baroque musette has only been played in Australia twice before (by Simon) – once in Sydney and once in Melbourne. So this is a Daylesford exclusive!

This concert is a rare opportunity to hear these rare instruments playing this rarely-heard repertoire. Don’t expect musical fireworks; this is music for the enjoyment of a few selected friends to enjoy in private. For this concert, we invite you into our inner circle to be charmed by these intimate strains.

Date: Saturday, July 29
Time: 2:30 pm
