2015/16 Concert Series
September 2015 - June 2016
Our new 2015/16 season celebrates music across four centuries - from the Battle of Agincourt in 1415 commemorated by The Clerks (Friday 23 October 2015) to Salomon's chamber arrangements of Haydn's "London" and "Surprise" Symphonies presented by Florilegium (Sunday 27 September 2015).
Other guest artists include La Serenissima, who present a popular programme of fabulous Vivaldi concertos, including his Four Seasons and music for 'prepared violin', the violin in tromba marina (Saturday 21 November 2015); Magnificat return to Cambridge to launch a new CD and perform Josquin's Miserere mei, Deus and other works inspired by the writings of the 15th century Florentine friar Girolamo Savonarola (Friday 26 February 2016); and The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments explore some of the seemingly magical and musical phenomena that seventeenth-century philosopher Francis Bacon sought to explain (Saturday 25 June 2016).
Chase out the festive chill from the Celtic fringes of Europe with traditional carols and wassails from Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales performed by Joglaresa (Friday 18 December 2015), and celebrate the 2016 European Day of Early Music with Richard Boothby and Christophe Coin, who perform an eclectic range of music for two viola da gambas (Saturday 19 March 2016).
