Britten and the Classical Revolution

Classical Revolution - London
Matthew Barley's Around Britten tour reaches Classical Revolution tonight (7 May) at the Green Carnation in Soho. The cellist will be playing music for solo cello by Bach and by Britten from his tour (see my review of his Around Britten concert in Southampton) and will be improvising with musicians from the Cassical Revolution London collective. Violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen will be on-hand to play music for solo violin, and the Gelachter wind trio will be playing Mozart and McDowall.

Classical Revolution began in the USA in 2006 and was one of the first groups to take music out of the concert hall and into non-traditional venues. The London chapter has been going since 2012 and is curated by violinist Simon Hewitt Jones. Tonight's concert takes place at the Green Carnation bar in Soho, further information from the Classical Revolution website.
