This year’s Guildford Guitar Day has an Elizabethan theme. Three concerts will take place in Guildford’s historic Guildhall, which dates from 1589. Internationally acclaimed theorbo and lute player Matthew Wadsworth is joined by one of his regular collaborators, Baroque specialist Julia Doyle, for an intimate programme fuelled by the vitality of English song. Earlier the day, holders of the Worshipful Company of Musicians’ New Elizabethan Award will perform music taken from both Elizabethan eras. Settings of Shakespeare feature in Jesse Flowers’s solo recital (Philip Houghton’s ‘Ophelia: a haunted sonata’) and in the recital to be given by Lotte Betts-Dean (soprano) and Andrey Lebedev (guitar). Capacity is limited to 100, so be sure to book early for this rare treat.
