It was a very special afternoon on June 17 at Sydney Conservatorium when we premiered our “A Bass Affair” program. A varied array of instruments were on display:

  • Bass violin
  • Viola da gamba
  • Theorbo
  • Archlute
  • Gallichon; and:
  • Baroque guitar

In all my years of playing the viola da gamba I have not performed continuo and duets with a bass violin and doing just that with Tim Blomfield, and lutenist Tommie Andersson, was pure pleasure. And how beautifully did Josie Ryan sing? She is such a superb interpreter of French music.

Thanks to all of those who came along and/or sent messages of support.

Here is the Afterparty!
