    The Delightful Companion: Family Concert

    5pm

    The Landmark Centre, Teddington, SW London

    Drawing on a vast array of recorders from the tiny garklein to the great sub-contra bass (including a 15-piece renaissance consort), the recorder quartet Fontanella present a programme aptly named after Robert Carr’s popular music book, published in London in the 1680s.

    From a virtuosic concerto by John Baston, to divisions on the famous Greensleeves, Henry Purcell’s Chaconne 3 Parts Upon a Ground and hits from The Catch Club, this concert promises to paint a colourful musical landscape of a country regaining its rich musical identity after the austerity years of Cromwell’s rule, the great plague and fire of London.

    With additional repertoire by Locke, Campion, Banister, tunes from the Division Flute and Playford’s Dancing Master.

    This concert us suitable for all the family, and a wonderful introduction to the world of the recorder and its music.
