Carrick Concerts will be hosting one of the world’s leading exponents of early keyboard instruments at Enys House on June 5th. Carole Cerasi will be performing on the virginals and harpsichord; possibly the first time Cornwall has hosted a virginals recital. Her many performances elsewhere have received great critical acclaim and her recordings have garnered an impressive series of awards. The Gramophone describes her as “a player of taste and superb technique”, while Classics.com talks of “Sublime performances… simply breath-taking, all thunder and lightning.”
Before the interval, Carole will play a recital of Elizabethan music on the virginals; entirely fitting for the Platinum Jubilee of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II as it was the favoured instrument played of the Virgin Queen, her namesake, Elizabeth I. As the evening progresses, Carole will move to the harpsichord to play music from the baroque era.
This concert is being sponsored by Pendennis Shipyard. Tickets from Carrick Concerts.
