About Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

Throughout the ages, music and magic have been intrinsically linked. Join award-winning recorder quartet Palisander, for a theatrical, multimedia performance. Featuring music by Tartini, JS Bach and Hildegard von Bingen, alongside renaissance consort music and contemporary works, the performance explores the historic relationship between music and the magical spectrum: including elements of mathematics, philosophy, nature, religion and the occult. Historical accounts and medieval spells are paired with sensitive visual projections and choreography for a unique event, not to be missed!

The original broadcast of this event was on 26 September 2021.

Palisander presented this concert-film with an optional pre-performance online workshop at 14:30 BST.

If you are watching on demand after the original broadcast date, your access will be restricted to the filmed concert of Double, Double, Toil and Trouble.

About the workshop

Palisander is renowned for its high quality, imaginative education work. Pitched for intermediate recorder players, this practical Zoom workshop will cover the three main genres of recorder playing: Renaissance, Baroque & Modern. Sheet music will be sent in advance and the pieces will then feature in the show in a ‘play along’ format, for you to join in with from home!

This event is made possible by a grant awarded by the Continuo Foundation.

Devising their own choreography, as well as writing new compositions and unique arrangements for the ensemble, the group’s members are keen ambassadors for the recorder’s versatility. This is brought to life in the exciting theatrical concerts, for which Palisander is known internationally.
