The Georgian Concert Society

February 25, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Sofie Vanden Eynde and Romina Lischka, with Thomas Hobbs – Orpheus’ Noble Strings

Sofie Vanden Eynde – lute, orpharion, bandora; Romina Lischka – viola da gamba, lyra viol; Thomas Hobbs – tenor

Orpheus and his lyre: how better to picture the power of music? Orpheus could move stones to tears; he even moved to pity the gates of death. Music overturns the world, this the composers of the English Renaissance knew very well. Even more, music is the soul of the world, a unifying force. The acclaimed lyrical tenor Thomas Hobbs celebrates the many facets of music in lute songs by Campion and Danyel, among others.

“Thomas Hobbs sang with fervour and a beautiful tone” – Classical Source

“Even more impressive, however, is the interaction between the two performers, who seem almost to breathe as one” – BBC Music Magazine on S. Vanden Eynde and R. Lischka
