For now, just posting the notes - as transcribed on the train - from seeing Rust and Stardust and Palisander perform Dr Dee's Daughter at Beverley Early Music Festival on Monday 29 May 2017 at 2.00 p.m.

Rust & Stardust‏ @ruststardust1 Jun 3
Our lovely show with Palisander, Dr Dee's Daughter, has only gone and been featured in Gramophone! Looking...

Art and Artifice – Entwined

Touching and delightful show

'A father is a friend for ever'

'A true friend is a rare bird'

'Logic and love' versus 'Loss and hate'

'I thought that it would bring back your health, happiness - bring back you'

For those for whom 'knowledge is experience' [experientia - experience, though noon auctoritee]

Spend all their time *talking about* being clever - without *being* clever

An energized and enthusiastic performance - a consummate consort, wonderfully attired, thanks to Katie Sommers

Dramatic, because on stage with Rust and Stardust - the power in the narration and of the enactment

Contrabass - a huge instrument, like an organ-pipe. Scrolls on music-stands

Some staccato (some of it 'chirpy'), and some slurs and run-togethers

Imaginative stage-business, as well as involving Palisander - as well as a match of puppeteers to dolls (two girls, playing with their dolls, but believing in it), players and performers are charging around

The four different winds have different characters, of instrument and of playing

Comfort in recurring themes, but also (with Ludovico) ominous sounds, breathings (some very breathy) and intonations - toothy ?? endentures, and fractured tones

Unless stated otherwise, all films reviewed were screened at Festival Central (Arts Picturehouse, Cambridge)
