Genius and Murder in Brighton

Gesualdo - Genius and Murderer
This autumn's Brighton Early Music Festival (BREMF) will include a newly commissioned music drama on Carlo Gesualdo (1566 - 1613), the renaissance Prince famous both for the amazing chromaticism and harmonic instability of his music, and for the fact that he murdered his wife and her lover. BREMF's new drama will premiere in 3 November, but if you can't wait that long then the BREMF Consort of Voices will be performing Gesualdo's Tenebrae Responsories along with works by Palestrina and Monteverdi on May 27 at St Bartholomew's Church, Brighton as part of the Brighton Festival Fringe. Further information from the BREMF website.
