A singular performance

Andrew Byrne with Baroque lute

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Early music enthusiasts will delight in our upcoming Resonance concert - Lyra Eterna - showcasing one superb early music artist, a very fine instrument and works by a brilliant composer.

This singular event features the very talented Andrew Byrne on Baroque lute playing works by composer Sylvius Leopold Weiss (1687-1750).

A graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium under the direction of Tommie Anderson, Andrew was the first student in Australia to complete an entire performance degree on the lute. He subsequently studied at the Instituto di Musica Antica at Villa Simonetta in Italy and has performed with Opera Australia, Victorian Opera and The Orchestra of the Antipodes – to name just a few.

Andrew will play a noble 13 - course Baroque Lute modelled on Tieffenbrucker/Edlinger – instruments from around 1600-1720. Strung entirely with 24 natural gut strings this instrument marks the end of over a thousand years in the development of the lute.

Be prepared for a memorable experience in music at this wonderful highlight of Bayside's Resonance Music Series.
