Matthew Nisbet – Lutenist

Matthew Nisbet is a professional lutenist playing with famous UK period-instrument groups such as The King’s Consort, I Fagiolini, and the Dunedin Consort.

Come to St Peter’s and take a tour through some of the jewels of the repertoire in this portrait of the intimate and mellifluous sound world of early plucked instruments, performed on instruments reconstructed after models from around 1600.

Matthew will be playing the renaissance lute and its close relations, the theorbo (pictured) and baroque guitar. The programme will include virtuoso pieces by Kapsberger, a selection of Dowland’s best-loved tunes, and some of the earliest examples of Spanish guitar music.

All are welcome to this rare opportunity!

Free admission, refreshments, retiring collection for the artist.
