Historical performance on period instruments. I must admit I am a bit of a geek when it comes to history. If I hadn't discovered music, I might be attending medieval reenactment events, renaissance fairs and the likes (actually who's to say I won't!). The music of the past, and the instruments-particularly the lutes and guitars-have a sound that completely captured my imagination. Once I delved into the study of historical performance, and into the repertoire, I suddenly realized how connected we really are with the past. The modern day human versus the one from four hundred years ago is not so different, and music has always held an important place in daily life. The modern day musician and the musicians of the past have similar technical issues, musical issues, questions of taste and interest. It is my goal to blend the two. Living in the 21st century, I have a particular background, but I wish to bring to today's audiences a musical experience offered by musicians of centuries gone while remaining in touch with the realities of the world as it is now.
