The period instrument ensemble Satyr’s Band was initiated by a young group of musicians who met while studying in The Netherlands. Since the group’s formation in 2006 they have performed regularly together across Europe and Australia. While they draw on repertoire from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as contemporary works, the ensemble designs a unique program for each concert.
One of the main areas of interest is their arrangement of English masque dances. These may be combined to present a complete Masque, and the performance can incorporate actual masks designed and made by Lisa Goldberg.
Through their careful selection of familiar and unfamiliar repertoire the group employs all the possibilities of instrumentation available to them with ease. Different levels of improvisation are incorporated into the ensemble’s performances, adding liveliness and spontaneity to virtuosic instrumental music.
