Musicians have always been indebted to their patrons. The countless hours of rigorous scholarship, practice and experience that has shaped history’s greatest performers is almost always facilitated by the generosity of one or two gracious individuals - Dowland had Christian IV of Denmark, Haydn had Prince Esterházy and Mozart relied on Baron Gottfried van Swieten.
21st century musicians face these same financial obstacles, however classical music is no longer ‘popular music’ and appeals to a much smaller audience than it did in centuries past. Modern scholar-performers are more reliant than ever on the support of patrons and fellow music enthusiasts who are passionate about culture, history and art. If you would like to help preserve the sublime music of the greatest renaissance lute composers (for generations to come) please consider becoming a patron below!
