Duo Serenissima 


Luitliederen door Dutch Classical Talents

Duo Serenissima consists of soprano Elisabeth Hetherington and lutenist David Mackor. The duo focuses on the performance of 17ecentury lute songs. The source of inspiration is Baroque Venice, where the 'most serene' music was born. Duo Serenissima has already been heard and seen on many (inter)national stages. In 2019 they were considered as Dutch Classical Talent and made a tour along ten Dutch concert stages. It is looking for its own way within the performance practice of early music. For example, the research is investigating the original pronunciation of Elizabethan English, a theme that is still fairly underexposed. Soprano and lutenist sing and play with knowledge, skill and passion and like to bring theater into their performances.

According to Marjolijn


The program of Podium Klassiek Eindhoven is put together by Marjolijn Sengers. Why did she choose this concert?

"I was pleasantly surprised when I heard this young duo, their sound has a very individual and expressive approach to baroque lute songs. All the rules of early music are observed by the singer and lutenist with a great deal of knowledge and a sense of style, with the necessary freedom of interpretation. So not just Dowland and his contemporaries, but an era of courtly and less courtly musical poetry. "
