EMMA KIRKBY WITH JAKOB LINDBERG

Sunday 14 April 2019  |  2:30PM

A MUSICAL BANQUET

‘Kirkby’s ability to shade her notes and evoke emotions without undue recourse to vibrato is still almost unrivalled.’

International Record Review

Dame Emma Kirkby is one of the world’s great sopranos. Over a career spanning nearly fifty years and a discography of more than one hundred recordings, her trailblazing contribution has left audiences around the globe in love with the refined beauties of early music.

Swedish lutenist Jakob Lindberg has been her musical partner for decades. A masterly player of a softly-spoken instrument, his artistry transports listeners to other times and places.

In a performance structured like a degustation, Emma and Jakob present a smorgasbord of early Baroque and Renaissance lute songs, where instrumental solos act as palette cleansers in a feast of song.
