with guest violinist Lucinda Moon

Restoration is one of New Zealand’s most experienced and accomplished baroque ensembles. The members of the group have been working together over many years in concerts, tours and recordings, and collaborating with numerous visiting and local artists specializing in the performance of baroque music and dance using the original instruments, styles and techniques of the time. In this programme they are again joined by Australia’s foremost baroque violinist, Lucinda Moon, renowned for her deep understanding of the music, her beautiful sound, expressiveness and freedom in her playing.

The group’s guiding principle is that this music speaks most directly to us with its original voice and inflections, and that modern audiences need no compromises to modern tastes and demands, to gain the greatest enjoyment and enlightenment from this window into the wonderfully foreign world of the past.
