16:30 Contemporary music for lute, with discussion following: (Aus) Susan King
Music for lute and laptop by Matthew Leigh Embleton (composer is present)
> Doopsgezinde kerk
> €16/ €10

Although the repertoire expands gradually, new compositions for the lute appear only sparsely. Why is this new repertoire for the lute so limited in comparison with f.i. that for the recorder? Do lute players tend to be more conservative? Is the lute less accessible for modern composers? After the Susan King’s performance, a short, guided discussion occurs.
