Elizabeth Kenny

Elizabeth Kenny is one of Europe’s leading lute players. Her playing has been described as ‘incandescent’ (Music and Vision), ‘radical’ (The Independent on Sunday) and ‘indecently beautiful’ (Toronto Post). In over a decade of touring she has played with many of the world’s best period instrument groups and experienced many different approaches to music making. She is a principal player and initiator of seventeenth-century projects with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, has played with viol consort Concordia since its founding, and has built chamber music and recital partnerships with a number of distinguished artists. Elizabeth Kenny retains a strong international connection with William Christie’s Les Arts Florissants. Her research interests have led to critically acclaimed recordings of Lawes, Purcell and Dowland, and to ideas such as the ‘Masque of Moments’ which she took to festivals in England and Germany in 2007/08. She taught for two years at the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin, is professor of Lute at the Royal Academy of Music, and a Lecturer in Performance and Head of Early Music at Southampton University
