Two of Sydney's finest early music ensembles, The Marais Project and The Muffat Collective, combine to present an afternoon of rare and fine music for viola da gamba and strings.
Composer, professor of rhetoric and traveller, Georg Muffat was the ideal seventeenth-century humanist and gave his name to The Muffat Collective, an exciting new early music ensemble. In a concert co-directed by Anthony Abouhamad, The Muffat Collective and The Marais Project will present a rare performance of a Suite for viola da gamba and strings by Georg Philipp Telemann. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear the viol and violin family together on stage.
In 2017, The Marais Project returns to The Independent, North Sydney, for three fabulously diverse events, its 18th year of creative concert-giving. Since its founding by Jennifer Eriksson in 2000, The Marais Project has released 5 CDs, three of which have been selected as “CD of the Week” on ABC Classic FM. A 6th CD will appear in 2017. The group regularly features in national and local studio broadcasts and radio interviews. They have performed across Eastern Australia and as guest artists in New Zealand.
