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.
