It seems Faron Woods from Zelda: Twilight Princess was made for these Baroque instruments (viola da gamba, Baroque viola and guitar, and harpsichord). It just works too well! See the full video on YouTube (link in bio).
Music of Portuguese Malacca 1511-1641
Taken in 1511, Malacca was the first European colony in Southeast Asia. What music fills a newly-conquered and newly-Christianised city?
After months of research involving scholars and libraries from Portugal and Spain, we have put together a reconstruction that includes sacred music by Portuguese composers possibly heard at the cathedral and churches, songs and dances heard in the chambers of the ruling class, as well as the rougher songs of the sailors and cut-throats in the streets and taverns.
Cappella Martialis will be singing in Latin, Portuguese, and Castilian, as well as playing instruments that would have been played in the 1500s and 1600s.
There will be a pre-concert talk at 7:30pm in which the music programme as well as the instruments featured that night will be introduced in detail to the audience. Not to be missed!

Melaka Classics Festival 2019 | ReImagining Melaka
Practicing some Geminiani to play with one of my baroque cello students who’s getting used to playing continuo! It’s such a blast to be accompanied by my students and gives me an opportunity to visit old repertoire. I played this sonata for my Master’s recital in 2012 but haven’t touched it much since then. Also if you’re missing the cadence the last few seconds of this is on my story 🤗 remember when IG only had 15 second videos though??
📜: Geminiani - Cello Sonata no. 6 in A minor, IV. Allegro
Coranto by Mr Simon Ives... this piece has been on my mind a lot and thought I would get you guys hooked as well. This piece is in Harpway Sharp tuning so my open strings make a beautiful G Major chord. Side note: these 👠 feel amazing to play in! #violadagamba#baroquemusic
Just posted a new video on YouTube with the amazing @marzawilks! I interviewed her about what it’s like to perform the Elgar concerto with orchestra and some more questions about her favorite performances. Watch at YouTube.com/emilyplayscello 🎻👭
