Lithgow-based musician Lorentz Lossius is set to host a recital in Bathurst next week exploring the possibilities of the harpsichord as a musical instrument.
The recital, entitled Rivers of Deep Purple, will see Lossius perform classics by 17th century composers such as Couperin, Frescobaldi and Sweelinck.
Lossius will approach the pieces with the same verve, energy and spontaneity the aforementioned composers originally intended for their works.
The program will also include three pieces written by Lorentz himself, which inject a decidedly jazzy and cabaret flavour to the classical genre.
Lossius' recitial will commence at 1pm on Tuesday, October 8, at All Saints' Cathedral.
The event is being billed as an opportunity to enjoy quality music while on break for lunch.
Admission is $10 at the door and for enquiries, contact All Saints' Cathedral head of music David Hood at email@example.com.
