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.
