Concert – Corelli and his Contemporaries

Date/Time
Sunday 22 September 2013 at 03:30

Cathy

 Director/Leader: Catherine Martin

Cheri_2Soloist:  Cheri Richens (flute)

Salisbury’s own period instrument ensemble, Salisbury Baroque, celebrates the works of Corelli and his contemporaries in its next concert at St Thomas’s Church, Salisbury, Sunday 22nd September, at 3.30pm.

This afternoon concert features works by both well known and lesser known composers of the Italian Baroque – Corelli, Albinoni, Geminiani, Mancini and Vivaldi – set in one Salisbury’s most beautiful and accessible churches.

Director and soloist Catherine Martin is a distinguished period instrument specialist and is much in demand as musical director and soloist.  She has led the Gabrieli Consort and Players, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The English Concert and Florilegium.  She appears on many recordings including those with The Gabrieli Consort and Players, Ensemble Galant, and I Fagiolini.

Also appearing as soloist is Cheri Richens, well known in the Salisbury area as a popular teacher and principal flautist of Salisbury Sinfonia.

Founded by David Morgan, Salisbury Baroque was set up in 2010 to enable local players (and some colleagues from further afield) to share their passion for the music of Bach and Handel and their contemporaries with audiences in historic settings.  Using copies of instruments of the period and authentic playing style, the group brings to its audience a sense of intimacy and style difficult to achieve with larger forces and modern, heavier instruments.

Tickets are available in advance from Cross Keys Bookshop and on the door.
