Van Diemen’s Band – Borderlands
From Tasmania comes a group of performers that revel in the liveliness and intrigue of borderlands. Playing music of composers who lived and worked, as fluid borders shifted beneath their feet. A musical backdrop to the tumult of the Thirty Years War and the meeting of cultures at the edges of the Holy Roman and Ottoman Empires. Julia Fredersdorff, artistic director/violin, has curated a programme that explores the sublime simplicity of music of the early baroque period, as well as works startling for their originality and spirited evocations of battles and dances—all performed with the raw freshness that audiences have come to know from music on gut strings and original set ups.
