Amphion Consort with Jenny Bliss and Johan Lofving

4th October 7:00pm - 9:30pm



On Friday 4th October, Amphion Consort will be performing a unique concert in the Undercroft of The Bishop’s Palace as a response to the RE-FORMATION exhibition taking place throughout the Palace & Gardens.

Jenny Bliss and Johan Lofving  will be rounding up this summer’s exhibition with a profound musical experience.

They will perform sonatas by the C17th Rosicrucian Mystic and violin virtuoso Heinrich Biber including sonatas from his collection of Mystery Sonatas.

In the Resurrection Sonata, the violin tuning is transformed by swapping over the middle 2 strings making the shape of a cross. In the words of Nigel Kennedy Jenny is ‘imaginative and has an affinity for Biber’.

They will also perform contemporary works including the beautiful song ‘October’ by the late Glastonbury based composer Stanley Messenger and compositions and improvisations inspired by the exhibition at the palace.

Jenny Bliss - baroque violin, viola da gamba, voice
Johan Lofving - theorbo ( bass lute) and guitar

Drinks and canapes before the concert. Friday 4th October, 7pm for 7:30pm
