Following rave reviews for its appearances at St John’s Smith Square, the recorder quartet Palisander comes to Brighton with a programme inspired by the voyages to the New World by Columbus, Drake and Raleigh. Balancing music from the explorers’ native courts with pieces inspired by the sea, explorations into the music of the indigenous peoples of the Americas and works inspired by Anglo–Spanish conflicts, this virtuosic ensemble plays a range of recorders, both Renaissance and Baroque in design.
