Concert: The Art of Obbligato

September 9 @ 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm

Free, with a retiring collection

Davina Clarke returns to Saint Anne’s, together with musical friends from the English Baroque Soloists, to present a concert of arias and ensemble interactions to invigorate and insulate as summer draws to a close.

Violinist Davina Clarke will be joined by Eleanor Minney (mezzo-soprano), Jonathan Rees (viola da gamba and violoncello) and Oliver-John Ruthven (harpsichord).

These esteemed musicians play regularly with the English Baroque Soloists, Academy of Ancient Music, The English Concert and The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, but also in smaller, more intimate settings through chamber recitals around the UK.

1685 was a great year for Baroque music. It bought us two of the great masters of the Baroque Period, J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel, both famed for their extraordinary understanding of the relationship between voice and instrument. Two very different composers, but both displaying the utmost ability to juxtapose extreme drama and delicate subtleties in music, highlighted in this varied programme.
