This weekend we have two exciting concerts to share:
Saturday 2nd September – 7.30pm – Norwich Cathedral
Norwich Baroque and Norwich Cathedral are bringing
Nos 2,3,4, with a fine group of soloists:
SIMON MUNDAY – trumpet
(La Serenissima, London Brass, Dunedin Consort, English Baroque soloists)
(leader of the Gabrieli Players, guest director around UK and Europe)
(Hanover band, Ex-Cathedra, OAE)
The 6 Brandenburg Concertos take their name from the nobleman to whom they were dedicated, Margrave Christian Ludwig of Brandenburg.
They are full of variety and tuneful, virtuosic writing for the many solo instruments that they feature. Each concerto showcases a different solo combination:
Number 2 features Recorder, Oboe, Violin and a notoriously heroic natural trumpet part, not for the faint hearted, with accompanying strings. Simon Munday has made Brandenburg 2 a trade mark.
Number 3 is for 10 solo string players (3 violins, 3 violas, 3 cellos and double bass) plus harpsichord; watch the themes bounce around between the players, each one of equal importance.
Number 4 features 2 recorders and a dazzling violin line, plus strings.
To entice you still further, our programme will also include:
– Telemann’s concerto for violin and trumpet
– JS Bach’s vibrant and ever popular violin concerto in E major
– Telemann’s hauntingly beautiful concerto in D minor for oboe
