About this concert
Fresh and vigorous, dauntless and eager, humorous and unconventional: these are but a few of the terms used to characterize keyboard adventurer Richard Egarr. In this solo recital he is placing the laurels on the head of fellow daredevil William Lawes, musician in the England of Charles I. Lawes was blessed with a productive quill, innovative musical language and astounding versatility. The overwhelming proof of this is provided by this selection of anthems and delightfully wilful Fantasy Suites.
