Date: Tuesday 17 May, 7.30pm
The Muffat Collective takes its name from George Muffat (1653–1704), a remarkable German composer who proposed that “a gathering together of the best styles of various nations would be appropriate in order to amuse you.” He implied that by uniting the French, Italian and German music styles of the Baroque period, he would bring these often quarrelsome nations closer together.
In the hands of four brilliant musicians, Sydney’s newest period ensemble brings you the flair of the Baroque, guaranteed to refresh the spirit – plus entertain and perhaps even amuse!
The Collective’s members have recently returned to Sydney after further study and engagements as soloists, concertmasters and in early music ensembles in Europe. Hear their exquisite interpretation of works by Couperin, Leclair and more, and share in their passion for the Baroque!
