This experience will be divided into two parts: First, there will be a short overview by Dr. Nick Newton of the fear of illness and impending surgery on individuals in the 17th & 18th Century, followed by an introductory talk from Dr. Tim Smith, focussing on the aetiology and management of bladder stones in the pre-anaesthetic era.

These brief introductions will set the scene for a concert by the Royal Baroque Ensemble, under the direction of Katarzyna Kowalik, of music composed by Marin, Lully, Froberger, Couperin and Zelenka reflecting the patient's anxieties concerning illness, surgery without anaesthesia and the close encounters with imminent or untimely death.

Royal Baroque

Coming from Finland, Norway, Poland and the United Kingdom, the members of Royal Baroque met at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London in September 2010. They began with an interest in the wide reaching influence of court music during the prebaroque and baroque eras, exploring the works of composers who enjoyed the patronage of the Royals. The group’s repertoire extends from the early Italian to the national styles of the English, French and German courts, which, with the majority being multi- instrumentalists, they are able to play in unique combinations. Royal Baroque performed in many London venues, among others at the London Handel Festival with Anna Starushkevych – the winner of the Handel Singing Competition. The ensemble was nominated to represent Guildhall School of Music and Drama for the Sir Anthony Lewis Memorial Prize competition organised by the Musica Britannica Trust and also was finalists in the prestigious Fenton House Early Keyboard competition. Royal Baroque were highly commended in the final of the York Early Music International Young Artists Competition (2015).
