Marcia Hadjimarkos

Clavichord recital



4.00pm, Sunday 13th December 2015



Celebrate Yule effervescently with Joglaresa - and chase out the chill from the Celtic fringes of Europe - with traditional carols and wassails from Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. With fidel, harp, bells, bagpipes and voices Joglaresa ring in Christmas and New Year. Carols, lullabies, dance tunes and wassails.

Directed by Belinda Sykes, this London-based ensemble has been playing since 1992. Now well-established, they are particularly interesting for the way in which they imaginatively push, and often transcend, the limits of what is often thought of as early music.

Maggie Cole, harpsichord

Alison BuryMaggie ColeJean Paterson

Alison Bury and Jean Paterson play violins made in the 1660s by a little known but fine maker, Fabrizio Senta of Turin. There are few examples of his work so this is a rare opportunity to hear the extraordinary blend of these two matched instruments. Alison and Jean are joined by the eminent harpsichordist Maggie Cole in a programme of trio sonatas by Purcell, Corelli and Handel.
