Sequenza Trio - A Perfect Afternoon (Longford)
Sequenza will be returning to some of their favourite towns in March and April with performances in Richmond, Swansea and Longford. The tour is called A Perfect Afternoon and each afternoon concert will feature music chosen from the royal courts of 17th century Spain, France, England and Germany. Sequenza will play in Richmond at St Lukes Church on Saturday the 18th of March, in Swansea at Kennedia, 13 Kennedia Place, on Sunday the 19th of March, and in Longford at the Town Hall on Saturday the 1st of April. All the concerts start at 2.30pm.
Sequenza was formed in 2015 and enjoys a mixture of contemporary music on early instruments and early music from the 16th and 17th centuries that is ideally suited to smaller halls and more intimate surroundings. For this tour Sequenza will play as a trio with Brett Rutherford on viola da gamba, Matt Goddard on percussion and David Malone on lute and classical guitar.
Sequenza’s members are professional musicians based in Hobart. Brett Rutherford began his career as a cellist in Sydney’s Elizabethan Orchestra and then studied in London before accepting a full-time position with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra (TSO). Matt Goddard began on drum kit and subsequently studied percussion and timpani at the Victorian College of the Arts. He was a member of a number of ensembles in Australia and Japan before joining the TSO and returning to his home town of Hobart. Originally from Sydney, David Malone majored in guitar at the Canberra School of Music at ANU with further studies in Europe, including at Santiago de Compostela in Spain. On returning to Australia, David moved to Tasmania to coordinate the guitar department at the UTAS Conservatorium of Music.
