Early Music as Arts & Crafts: Exploring the Dolmetsch Heritage
Join Tesserae Baroque and The Da Camera Society for a concert celebrating the link between the Early Music movement and the Arts and Crafts architectural movement.
Held at the historic Gamble House in Pasadena, the event will feature simultaneous musical performances throughout the venue. Audiences will be invited to move from room to room over the course of the afternoon, thus experiencing the synergy between music and architecture.
The program takes its name from Arnold Dolmetsch, a performer and instrument maker admired by protagonists of the Arts and Crafts movement. A champion of ‘authentic’ performances of early music, Dolmetsch was one of the first people in Britain to build copies of historic instruments. The early music he pioneered will be featured on the program.
