Antidotum Arachne
Palisander and lutenist Toby Carr
16th and 17th-century victims of venomous spider bites were offered no medicinal cure or relief. Instead the local musicians would work together to find the correct melody, known as a ‘tarantella’, which could cure them of their otherwise fatal symptoms.
Recorder ensemble Palisander explores a victim’s ordeal through the numerous symptoms and side effects of a tarantula’s bite.

SPalisanderunday 2nd April at 3pm

St John’s Smith Square, London, SW1P 3HA
Journey to the New World
Palisander

This programme is inspired by voyages to the New World by Christopher Columbus, Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh. It centers on themes of Renaissance exploration and discovery, with musical illustrations of the men’s journeys to the New World.
The chosen repertoire balances music of the explorers’ native courts performed on historically authentic instruments, with pieces inspired by the sea, explorations into the music of the indigenous peoples of the Americas and pieces inspired by the conflicts that arose as Anglo-Spanish relations soured. Whilst the ideas are drawn from the Age of Exploration, the music is not restricted to a single time frame, as the programme features repertoire that spans more than 500 years: ranging from Thomas Tallis to Vivaldi to Vaughan Williams.
Alongside pieces that were originally conceived for recorders and pipes, much of the repertoire has been specially arranged, written or reconstructed by Palisander for recorder quartet.
The ensemble will showcase a large range of recorders both Renaissance and Baroque in design
Tickets: £14 (£10)
