Join Nathaniel Mander and Sam Brown for an informal, intimate evening of music and discussion. Nathaniel and Sam will conjure up the 19th century salon with musical gems, performed on that quintessential salon instrument, the guitar, in duo with the museum's rare and beautiful Schantz piano.
They will introduce and illustrate their respective instruments, and Sam will also talk about the guitar's mystical relative, the lute.
"Just about every expectation was shifted... master musicians..."
"We were treated to a recital by Sam Brown and Nathaniel Mander. This personally and musically very charming duo performed works by Sweelinck, Tomkins, Dowland, Purcell, Byrd, Farnaby and John Danyel. What a treat!"
