Salisbury Baroque – The Grand Baroque Harpsichord

Date/Time
Sunday 03 March 2013 at 15:30

 Director/Soloist: Sharon Gould

Sharon_portraitSalisbury’s own period instrument ensemble, Salisbury Baroque, celebrates the magnificent harpsichord in its next concert at St Thomas’s Church Salisbury, Sunday 3rd March, at 3.30pm, with works by Bach, Buxtehude and Telemann. 

Joining the orchestra for this event will be local international harpsichord virtuoso Sharon Gould, performing as both ensemble director and soloist in Bach’s sumptuous D minor Concerto for Harpsichord and his Brandenburg Concerto no. 5.

Sharon has performed extensively throughout Europe and America in recitals, concertos and chamber ensembles, with appearances in London at the Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, Queen Ellizabeth’s Hall and St John’s, Smith Square.  She has broadcast on TV and radio in the UK and abroad, and her recordings won her a Spanish government award for ‘Contribution of Most Cultural Importance’.  Sharon has also taught at Royal College of Music, Royal Northern College of Music and Chethams Music School in Manchester.

This promises to be a glorious afternoon of music for baroque buffs and harpsichord fans alike, set in one of Salisbury’s most beautiful and accessible churches.

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

Baroque Music in Salisbury

Founded by David Morgan, the group 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.

Salisbury has a historic connection with key figures in the baroque musical world.  James Harris (1709 – 1780, educated in Salisbury, inherited Malmesbury House in the Close) organised regular subscription concerts and music festivals in Salisbury for nearly 50 years.  He introduced his friend and composer George Frederic Handel into Salisbury society, and Handel attended a concert at Malmesbury House, believed to be his first performance in England.

Location
St Thomas's Church, Salisbury.
