Latitude 37 is an exciting baroque trio whose members were drawn together by their passion for historically informed performance of 17th and 18th century music.

Latitude 37 is joined by outstanding violinist Lucinda Moon to tour Bohemia’s woods and fields, exploring the diversity of repertoire from this important part of Baroque Europe. Bohemia, now part of the modern-day Czech Republic, was a visiting ground for many aspiring young musicians from across Europe who were looking to cut their teeth in the music profession.

Latitude 37 explores works of exceptional beauty from foreign tourists such as Johannes Pachelbel, who became one of the most influential keyboard musicians back in his native Germany, to locally-grown virtuosos such as Heinrich Biber who captivated listeners with his advanced violin techniques and audacious harmonic language. In a specially devised program, be transported by the experimental melodic ideas and haunting beauty of this highly original music alongside the exotic scales of folk music from Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Wallachia and Slovakia.
