Charismatic and virtuosic, Tabea Debus has given recorder music a major reboot, mixing baroque staples with athletic workouts from contemporary innovators. She’s joined by the feisty saxophones of the Laefer Quartet, whose eclectic mix includes several new commissions alongside lively reworkings of timeless classics.
All nightmusic performances take place in the intimate setting of St David’s Level 3 Lounge, with atmospheric lighting and spoken introductions from the performers to open up their musical worlds. Every event will be as informal as it is immersive, with plenty of opportunities to talk to the artists between sets. To get you going, we even include your first drink in the ticket price.
