10 Wilson Street, Brighton

Arias and madrigals from Caccini’s famous collection will be presented by noted harpsichordist Elizabeth Anderson and her son, Jacob Lawrence. Le Nuove Musiche was published in Florence in 1602. Today, its songs for solo voice and basso continuo are rarely performed by males and even less frequently presented with the gesture of Caccini’s time. Both shortcomings will be remedied in this program which will also include harpsichord works by Frescobaldi and Scarlatti.

THE DANCES OF ITALY 1580 - 1730
SUNDAY 1 SEPTEMBER 2013 AT 2.15PM

BAYSIDE ARTS & CULTURAL CENTRE
Brighton Town Hall
Cnr. Wilson & Carpenter Streets, Brighton

Since formed in 1978, the Rippon Lea Renaissance Dancers have been Australia’s only company giving regular presentations of the complex choreographies of such Italian dance masters as Battistino, Caroso, Negri, Stefano and Grossatesta. This hallmark presentation will demonstrate some of the finest and most spectacular 17/18th Century works. It will also mark the Rippon Lea team’s thirty-fifth year and the Early Music Consort’s fortieth. Period costumes and instruments to be featured.

BRIGHTON TO STAGE OLD-WORLD DANCES

The eyes of the dance world will be on Brighton Town Hall on Sunday, September 1, when two recently-discovered 18th century dances will have their first Melbourne performance in the program “The Dances of Italy 1580-1730”.

The dances were written by Gaetano Grossatesta and presented as a wedding gift to a Venetian couple in 1726. Apart from a recent staging in Italy and one at Warragul earlier this month, there is no record of the two works being danced anywhere in the world after the original wedding date.

From early this year, Yoko Murakoshi and Vera Tarasova of the Rippon Lea Dancers have been working under the direction of Helga Hill OAM to perfect the French-style choreographies. Period costumes and instruments will highlight the concert which will be the last in this year’s Bayside City Council early music series.  

Because of interest in this program from Melbourne’s Italian community, advance booking is recommended on 9699 8417 (Early Arts Guild).  

 Admission:
$8 per person (18 years and over) Bookings are advised for this Fathers' Day program.
