“The listener is able to savor the individual qualities of each work…all the while marveling not only at Kenny’s acute sense of local color, form and texture but also her considerable technical prowess.” - Gramophone

Leading European lutenist Elizabeth Kenny’s playing has been described as “incandescent,” “radical” and “indecently beautiful.”  She joins the peerless British viol consort, Fretwork, for a program of music by English Renaissance composer, John Dowland, who was an inspiration for Benjamin Britten more than three centuries later. Dating from 1604, the Lachrimae is a collection of seven pavans and includes Dowland’s most famous lute solo.
