The Lute in Art

Simon Rees (words) & Luke Starkey (lute)

The lute is an instrument as beautiful as the music it plays. It has featured in paintings for many centuries, often with allegorical significance. It has been associated with Orpheus and Venus as well as with troubadours, courtiers, prostitutes and clowns.

Simon Rees shows how the shape of the lute developed from the 12th century to its last flourish in the 18th century. He also explains how lute makers have used paintings of lutes to recreate these rare and fascinating instruments. The lecture is illustrated with pictures and musical examples. The lutenist, Luke Starkey, will play a variety of lute pieces during this lecture.

Simon Rees graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge and worked for 23 years as dramaturg for National Opera, producing programmes and surtitles and giving lectures on opera. Freelance since 2012, he reviews, translates and writes articles for opera companies, as well as lecturing on music and art. He has published several novels, including The Devil’s Looking-Glass (Methuen), and two collections of poems, Animals, Beasts and Creatures and The Wood below Coelbren (Poetry Salzburg Press).

Luke Starkey graduated from Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with a degree in Composition. He is currently studying lute and theorbo and has performed as a continuo player with ensembles such as London Gala Orchestra, The Tomkins Consort and Abbey Baroque Players. Luke has also gained much experience performing with singers; from performing in opera productions to lute songs of the Renaissance period. He has also lectured on the study of lute tablature. As a composer, his compositions have been performed by BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Welsh Camerata and the Arditti Quartet.

Y Liwt Mewn Celf

Simon Rees (geiriau) a Luke Starkey (liwt)

Mae’r liwt yn offeryn sy’n edrych mor hardd ag y mae’n swnio. Mae wedi ymddangos mewn paentiadau am ganrifoedd, yn aml ag ystyr alegorïaidd iddo. Mae wedi’i gysylltu ag Orpheus a Fenws yn ogystal â thrwbadwriaid, gwÅ·r llys, puteiniaid a chlowniaid.

Simon Rees sy’n dangos sut y datblygodd siâp y liwt o’r 12fed ganrif hyd y 18fed ganrif. Bydd yn esbonio sut mae gwneuthurwyr liwt wedi bod yn defnyddio paentiadau i ail-greu’r offerynnau prin a diddorol hyn. Bydd darluniau i gyd-fynd â’r ddarlith, ac enghreifftiau cerddorol. Bydd y liwtydd, Luke Starkey, yn chwarae amrywiaeth o ddarnau ar y liwt yn ystod y ddarlith.

Graddiodd Simon Rees o Goleg y Drindod, Caergrawnt a bu’n gweithio am 23 mlynedd i gwmni National Opera, yn cynhyrchu rhaglenni, uwchdeitlau ac yn darlithio. Ers 2012 mae’n gweithio’n llawrydd, yn adolygu, cyfieithu ac ysgrifennu erthyglau i gwmnïau opera, yn ogystal â darlithio ar gerddoriaeth a chelf. Mae wedi cyhoeddi sawl nofel, gan gynnwys The Devil’s Looking-Glass (Methuen), a dau gasgliad o gerddi, Animals, Beasts and Creatures a The Wood below Coelbren (Poetry Salzburg Press).

Graddiodd Luke Starkey o Goleg Brenhinol Cerdd a Drama Cymru gyda gradd mewn Cyfansoddi. Mae’n astudio’r liwt a'r theorbo ac wedi perfformio fel chwaraewr continwo gyda cherddorfeydd fel y London Gala Orchestra, y Tomkins Consort a’r Abbey Baroque Players. Mae gan Luke brofiad o berfformio gyda chantorion; o berfformio mewn cynyrchiadau opera i ganeuon liwt y Dadeni. Mae hefyd wedi darlithio ar dabl nodiant y liwt. Mae ei waith fel cyfansoddwr wedi’i berfformio gan Gerddorfa Genedlaethol Gymreig y BBC, Camerata Cymreig a’r Arditti Quartet.
