Dowland Lachrimae, Pavan, Fantasia No. 7 

The flamboyant, intensely expressive performances of Michael Matthews reflect his upbringing in Europe, Africa and South America, and his studies with the unorthodox virtuoso Rob Johns. Matthews is fascinated by the links between the music of the Renaissance and today; this powerhouse programme will include Leo Brouwer’s El decameron Negro, which fuses inspiration from 14th-century Italy and 20th-century Africa.
