    A DROP OF AMBER VARNISH
    THE ADVENTURES OF NICHOLAS LANIER & ARTEMISIA GENTILESCHI

    ‘A very Ingenious vertuoso’, Nicholas Lanier was appointed the first-ever Master of the King’s Musick in 1625, but he was also an art connoisseur, sent by Charles I to Italy to buy paintings and recruit Italian artists for the English court. He returned not only with knowledge of the latest developments in Italian music, but having met and befriended the brilliant Artemisia Gentileschi, the first-ever professional woman painter.
    This concert of early 17th-century English and Italian music, including works by Lanier and Monteverdi, is accompanied by projections of paintings of and by Nicholas and Artemisia.

    “Chateauneuf possesses a magical ability to transcend technique and penetrate to the musical heart of a work.” The Boston Globe
