This programme presents music known in the Netherlands during the mid 1600s, which was the time of Abel Tasman's visit to Aotearoa/New Zealand. Tunes from Jacob Van Eyck’s charming publication of solo recorder divisions, Der Fluyten Lusthof (The Flute’s Garden of Delights) and keyboard works by Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck will form the foundation of the programme, which includes a selection of the English, French, German and Dutch tunes known to this cosmopolitan trading nation.

Kamala Bain and Rowena Simpson both trained in historical performance practice in The Netherlands. They first performed as a duo in a programme of contemporary music at the NZSM in 2011 and have since performed with Stroma in the April 2012 Soundbytes concert. For this programme they will join forces with NZSM’s new Lecturer in Historical Performance Practice, Erin Helyard. The newly-formed group is known as Barocca.

This concert is part of the NZSM's Friday Lunchtime Concert series. The concert will run from 12.10 – 1:00pm, is free, and the public are welcome to attend.

Te Kōkī, New Zealand School of Music is a joint enterprise of Massey University and Victoria University of Wellington.
