An Axcellent Production are proud to present Sting in concert, performing with Edin Karamazov and Stile Antico, in support of a special edition of the critically-acclaimed album, 'Songs from the Labyrinth' - a personal tribute to late 16th-century Elizabethan composer, John Dowland (1563-1626).
'Songs from the Labyrinth' began as a Deutsche Grammophon recording project in 2006 which surpassed all expectations by debuting at the top of the classical charts in the US, UK, France, Canada & Germany. The album remained on Billboard's #1 classical charts for fifteen consecutive weeks and was the top selling classical album of both 2006 and 2007.
Sting was first introduced to the music of John Dowland in the early 1980s, and has said that Dowland's music has been "gently haunting" him for more than twenty years.
Edin Karamazov, a protégé of the legendary conductor Sergiu Celibidache, has been Sting's partner in this project from its conception.
Also joining Sting and Edin Karamazov on this tour is the British a cappella choir Stile Antico, who are featured in all the European performances of 'Songs from the Labyrinth' to date, giving vocal accompaniment to some of the more raucous tavern songs and gentle lullabies that are found in Dowland's wide-ranging music.
