26th May 2018 – Fieri Consort – The Courtesan’s Gaze

Saturday 26th May 2018 – 7:30pm
St John’s Church, Broadstone

Supported by HK_ForLifeInAll

Members of the Fieri Consort, Hannah Ely & Lucy Cox are joined by Toby Carr & Aileen Henry to perform music by Monteverdi, Caccini & Strozzi.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first British women to get the vote. We have come a long way since then, and there is still much more to be done. Representation is one of the most important areas in which change is still needed, and in recognition of this, in 2018 we will be exploring the work of the 17th-Century Venetian composer, Barbara Strozzi. A businesswoman, mother, musician and alleged courtesan, Strozzi was one of the most prolific published composers of her time.

Barbara Strozzi was a 17th century, groundbreaking composer of sensual, dramatic & unusual songs. Giulio Strozzi, Barbara Strozzi’s father, led an academic study group for whom she acted as hostess, performed, and composed music. A famous painting of Strozzi depicts her with one breast bared and flowers in her hair, holding the gaze of the viewer – all of which were indicators that she was a courtesan. Several satires were published about the musical and intellectual meetings that she hosted at her father’s house, where ‘clothes were optional’.

The programme will explore whether these accusations were fair, or whether they were a response to society’s inability to place a strong successful woman such as Barbara Strozzi, who published more than almost any other composer at the time.

Tickets: Adults £15, under 18’s £7 –
