Neal Peres da Costa, Daniel Yeadon
Catherine Bott catches up with two of the founder members of Florilegium, harpsichordist Neal Peres da Costa and gamba player Daniel Yeadon at the York Early Music Festival.
Neal Peres da Costa and Daniel Yeadon are two highly experiences and sought after early music performers, for a long time associated with the celebrated ensemble Florilegium. They left this country several years ago and now spend a large amount of their time living and working in Australia.
Catherine Bott caught up with the pair in The Gallery at Harewood House, on a return visit to these shores, where they were featured artists at this year's York Early Music Festival. In conversation, Catherine looks back on their career; on early music in Australia, and introduces items from their York Festival recital, which featured music by Handel, Abel, JC Bach and Lanzetti.
