Internationally-acclaimed theorbo and lute player Matthew Wadsworth is joined by one of his regular collaborators, Baroque specialist Julia Doyle, for an intimate programme fuelled by the vitality of English song. With its close relationship to nature, folk art and poetry, the creative genius of Dowland, Purcell and Britten is balanced by the world premiere of a new commission for solo theorbo by Laura Snowden.

This performance will be presented in an intimate setting, with audience seating on the Symphony Hall stage.
