Those always-inventive folk at Brighton Early Music Festival ( BREMF ) hit the high notes again with the return of live outdoor concerts in June and July – all with the necessary social distancing.
After a 14-month gap they will present eight different musical offerings – some twice in a day – and all but one at the Royal Spa, Queens Park. They include medieval music from Italy, India and France.
Entitled Myths and Legends, the midsummer concerts run from 5 June to 11 July. They are:
6 June: Bhrama- Vishnu- Shiva presents Indian music, dance and storytelling.
13 June: The New Troy is a journey through London’s mythical origins.
Also on 13 June: The Destined Knot is a series of Italian madrigals
3 July: The Madrigal Reimagined brings us Monteverdi and the poet Ovid.
And finally on 11 July: Opera @ The Spa presents highlights of Francesca Caccioni’s La liberazione di Ruggiero
