Lutenist Hopkinson Smith in the Renaissance Library of the Fabbri Mansion

Hopkinson Smith, lute
Dowland's Europe: The Winds of Change

Commemorating the 450th anniversary of the great English composer, the great American lutenist performs a program of Dowland and his contemporaries, featuring selections from the 1611 publications Premier Livre of Robert Ballard, Il Libro Primo d’Intavolatura di Lauto of Girolamo Giovanni Kapsberger, and Dowland's Varietie of Lute Lessons, published in 1610.

The program offers a glimpse of not only the great variety in the lute publications of these two years, but the beginning of national styles that were to flourish into the 18th century.

The reconstructed Renaissance Library of the Fabbri Mansion provides the ideal venue for this intimate and exquisite repertoire. Built in the Ducal Palace of Urbino, Italy during the 15th century, the library was disassembled and brought to the US during WWI, where it was reassembled in the Fabbri Mansion, now known as the House of the Redeemer.

Tickets start at $25 and advance reservations are highly recommended. Please call[masked] or go to to purchase through our website.
