About this video: Latitude 37 performs their 2018 concert Folias in the Salon at Melbourne Recital Centre.
About the artists: Latitude 37 is an exciting Baroque trio whose members were drawn together by their passion for historically informed performance of 17th and 18th-century music. The special combination of Baroque violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord opens up a wealth of repertoire that is rarely explored by other Australian ensembles. Comprising top graduates of the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, the members of Latitude 37 share a unified interest in cultivating and communicating their art. Their spontaneity is inspired by the art of improvisation, communication and the humanity of a genre of music intended to charm and enchant its audience. Since its Melbourne debut in 2008, the ensemble has become an active presence on the Australasian early music scene, with festival appearances, concerts, tours and regular broadcasts on ABC Classic FM. Latitude 37’s first, self-titled CD and subsequent album Empires both received ARIA nominations, and a third album Royal Consorts with ABC Classics has been received with critical acclaim.
