Blackdown Early Music Projects (BEMP) presents In Echo

Description

Formed by cornetto player Gawain Glenton, In Echo specialises in renaissance and baroque music, the ensemble also commissions and performs new music for old instruments.

“It is natural to believe that people have always experienced the world much as we do today, but the truth is different. Fundamental attitudes – such as man’s place in the universe, the nature of society and everyday life – are not constant. They evolve and alter over time. The same is true with music. For instance, musical training in the 16th and 17th centuries was very different from the training classical musicians receive today, with the result that musicians then developed a different understanding of music from its most fundamental aspects.
We cannot click our fingers and ‘become’ musicians of the 16th century, but we can learn the things they learned, and explore the skills we know they developed. The aim is not academic, but to arrive at performances that connect more with modern audiences – just as fully historical productions of Shakespeare plays can be more accessible to people in the 21st century, not less.”

Gawain Glenton

The BEMP Third Thursday series of concerts is being promoted in partnership with the Friends of All Saints’ Church, Culmstock. The concerts will support two great causes, the continued livelihoods of the brilliant musicians invited to perform in the delightful acoustic of All Saints’, and after professional costs are met, the majority of remaining proceeds will be donated toward the development and improvement of the church for wider community access.

Statement from BEMP:
We have eight events in the pipeline for 2021, starting on May 20 and continuing through the year on the Third Thursday of each month. Please be aware that any changes to prevailing pandemic restrictions will determine the exact details. Travel restrictions and social distancing regulations may restrict audience size for the first few recitals.
