Pepusch – “Venus & Adonis”

As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m excited to be involved in upcoming performances of Pepusch’s masque “Venus & Adonis”, which is being presented by the University of Qld, to coincide with a conference on Arts and Rhetorics of Emotions in Early Modern Europe. A great deal of research goes on behind the scenes to bring these works to life for modern audiences, some of which can be glimpsed by following the link to the conference. The research for my masters thesis on early French violin sonatas also included many references to rhethorical theories of the period. A fascinating subject.
