The English Concert Go Small

Handel House Museum, London

All this week the English Concert have a series of smaller scale events at London's Handel House Museum, a chance to hear them in more intimate surrounds in the sort of spaces which Handel would himself have known. Each concert is performed twice, at 6pm and 7.30pm, thus giving a slightly wider opportunity.

Tonight, Monday, sees Nadja Zwiener exploring music for unaccompanied violin prior to Bach. Then on Tuesday there is a programme of French baroque music for trio (oboe, viola da gamba and harpsichord) taking suites from Couplerin's Le Gouts Reunis. Wednesday sees soprano Julia Doyle exploring Handel the European, with Handel's settings in three languages. Thursday we have music for violin and theorbo and finally on Friday a fascinating collection of Venetian sonatas for cello.
