THE THISTLE AND THE ROSE 

Available from Fleuri.

The Thistle and The Rose brings together folk influenced baroque music from Scotland and England played on recorders, viols and harpsichord.  As Fleuris most popular concert programme this is ideal repertoir for their first album.

‘The three musicians are all outstanding performers.  Justice demonstrates a virtuoso command of the various recorders with a broad range of articulation, creative intonation, cute ornaments , and a playful approach to rhythm and rubato.  Bullock is a truly wonderful viol player who brings Hume and a set of Playford pieces alive as if they were composed yesterday.  But she can let her viol sing with both natural and thoughtful phrasing in “Daphne”.  Cunningham demonstrates her abilities with Farnaby’s equally demanding and attractive, almost romantic “Daphne”.

PETER ACKROYD

Venice revealed DVD

This documentary from Athena Learning and Colonial Pictures for Sky Arts finds historian-cum-belletrist Peter Ackroyd leading viewers on a multidimensional tour of Venice, one of Italy’s most intriguing and mysterious cities. As Ackroyd tours such landmarks as churches, palazzos, alleyways and much more, he opts to focus on Venetian art (immortalized in tableaux by Guardi and Canaletto), music such as the hymns of Vivaldi performed by Vivaldi’s Women – Schola Pietatis Antonio Vivaldi – harpsichord played by Bridget Cunningham and theatre (typified by the legendary Venetian carnival). The film also interpolates conversations with preservationists struggling to protect the city’s artifacts from time and the sea. Buy now on acornonline http://acornonline.com/venice-revealed/p/14922/
