Ohrwurm: a programme of musical ‘earworms’ – those tunes and dances which have, over centuries caught in the mind on endless replay. Engaging music largely from the 14th to 17th centuries from these exciting young musicians.
Described by The Times as a ‘charismatic virtuoso’ Tabea Debus is much sought after as soloist, collaborator, teacher and communicator.
Over the last year she has returned to Wigmore Hall and recorded live concerts commissioned for release online by the Vancouver Recital Society, San Francisco Early Music, the Shriver Hall Washington D.C. Discover Series, London International Festival of Early Music and the Banquo de la Republica in Colombia. In 2020 her recording for Delphian: Ohrwurm was released to critical acclaim.
Passionate about outreach work, Tabea has developed several projects including a music art-game Soundshapes, a play-along library Continuo Lines, and Endo the Earthworm (a series of videos inspired by Gareth Moorcroft’s ‘Diaries of the Early Worm’).
This season Tabea gives recitals across the USA including the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C., Morgan Library (NY), UChicago series, Merkin Concert Hall (NY) and Houston Early Music. She returns to the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany where she won the prestigious Soloists Prize in 2019.
Tabea was a prize-winner at the YCAT International Auditions (London) in 2018 and the Concert Artists Guild (New York) Auditions in 2019.
A lutenist and guitarist from London, Toby Carr is known as an engaging and responsive artist, performing with some of the finest musicians in the business. Having studied at Trinity Laban and the Guildhall School he is now active as a soloist, continuo player and chamber musician working in the field of historically informed performance, bringing old music to new audiences in exciting and innovative ways.
This has included working with many of the foremost period instrument groups in the UK and Ireland, including Dunedin Consort, Academy of Ancient Music, The English Concert, La Nuova Musica, and Irish Baroque Orchestra.
Toby has also worked for the Royal Ballet, London Philharmonic Orchestra, RTE Symphony Orchestra, Longborough Festival Opera and for English Touring Opera for four tours from 2016 onwards. He is a founding member of Ceruleo and Lux Musicae London, and appears on a recent recording of the works of Barbara Strozzi by Fieri Consort. In 2019 he made his Wigmore Hall debut with Dame Emma Kirkby and her group Dowland Works.
