(This programme replaces the previously advertised concert to be given by Flauti d'echo who had to withdraw from this engagement).

Renowned for the performances of passion and commitment The Brook Street Band 'with their irrepressible, dancing energy are a joy to watch and hear'. They 'bring a lovely combination of virtuosity and vibrancy of their performances, really engaging the audience and making you want to listen for more'.  

Baroque music specialists, The Brook Street Band, evoke the spirit of the 1719 Dresden 'Festival of the Planets'. Attended by both Handel and Telemann, this was an event which celebrated political power and cultural achievement through art and music and where astronomy played an important part in the celebrations. We'll hear music by composers who made detailed studies of harmony and proportion in music, inspired by the movements of the sun, moon and planets.

The Brook Street Band: Lisete da Silva Bull (flute and recorder), Rachel Harris (baroque violin), Tatty Theo (baroque cello), Carolyn Gibley (harpsichord)

Duration: 2 hours with interval
