"Not only is each performer within Latitude 37 a superb musician, with in-depth knowledge of the history and structure of his/her instrument, but the sum of their improvised harmonies intertwine to create an exquisite ensemble repartee"- Bay of Plenty Times

The three members of Latitude 37 were drawn together by their passion for historically informed performance of 16th, 17th and 18th Century music.

Comprising some of the top graduates of the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, including New Zealander Donald Nicolson, Latitude 37 represent a new generation of period instrumentalists who share a unified interest in cultivating and communicating their art.

Latitude 37 epitomise the intensity and intimacy of a trio: vitality, excitement and expression are a defining feature of their performances. Their spontaneity is inspired by a passion for the art of improvisation, communication, and the humanity of a genre of music intended to charm and enchant its audience.

Following their highly successful regional tour in 2009, Chamber Music New Zealand is delighted to offer this exciting group as part of the main Kaleidoscopes Concert Season.

In Programme Two, Latitude 37 take you on a guided tour through the sumptuous world of 17th Century Italy. A hotbed of creativity, it was a century of contrasts as music and art took a dramatic turn after the rigorous limitations of the Renaissance. Including works by Caccini, Frescobaldi and Corelli plus Latitude 37's own improvisations.
