Bringing top quality classical concerts to the Abbey since 1971

Concert Royal

Malmesbury Abbey   Saturday 25th April 2020   7.30pm

Flautist Peter Harrison, keyboard specialist keyboard John Treherne and cellist Rachel Gray will present a programme that recreates an evening of musical entertainment from the Georgian drawing room, with Handel’s fine music providing a familiar framework.

Concert Royal has a reputation for presenting unjustly neglected English music, and each performance contains exciting rareties, unique to the ensemble’s repertoire.  To recreate the sound world of the Georgian country house, a beautiful copy of an early 18th century harpsichord will blend perfectly with historic instruments.

Sonatas, suites, country dances and a contemporary arrangement of Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks are featured.
