What’s on this season

Flaugissimo Duo – Lunch Time

Date: Monday, 14th October, 1.00 - 2.00pm
Location: The Lion Hotel, Shrewsbury
The French and British Gardens

Yu-Wei Hu – baroque flute

Johan Löfving – theorbo

Nature has long been a great inspiration for composers, especially since the Age of the Enlightenment, when the vogue for birdsong and portraits of flowers were at their height.

Flauguissimo Duo presents a selection of flute and theorbo music by French and English composers from the Baroque period, including pieces by Oswald, Basanti, Hotteterre, Roman and Couperin.

Yu-Wei and Johan specialize in historically-informed, lively and exciting interpretations of a wide variety of music from the 18th and 19th centuries, in the intimate setting of flute and theorbo/guitar as it flourished in the salon culture throughout Europe at that time.

The Duo has already won many prizes in prominent competitions, played in a wide variety of Festivals including Stratford, King’s Lynn and Utrecht, and in venues in this country and abroad such as the Albert Hall, King’s Place and BBC Proms Cadogan Hall.
