Baroque strings share this early summer programme with Schubert at his tuneful best.

Telemann's gentle 'Concerto for Two Violas' takes centre stage, following up on his Viola Concerto in G we performed at Leys Institute in 2019.

Two major contrasting works by Pietro Locatelli show Italian flair. His 'Trauersymphonie' reflects the sombre nature of a funeral, but traverses a path from sadness to optimism; from the past to the future.

Locatelli's 'Christmas Concerto' evokes the mystery, wonder and adoration of the season. Its bright and lively music requires two solo violins, two solo violas and a solo cello in addition to the usual complement of strings.

Schubert's youthful overture 'The Devil as Engineer' and selections from incidental music to 'Rosamunde' – with an entre'act, 'Shepherd's Melodies' and two ballets – round out our final concert of 2023.

Soloists: Judith Gust, Iona McDonald (viola); Evelyn Boyack, Paula Scandle (violin); Jessica Ambler (cello). 

Admission is free.
