Arioso Baroque Ensemble [Music Festival 2015]


Saturday 26th September at 7.30pm

[This event forms part of our Music Festival for 2015]

The acclaimed early chamber music group, ARIOSO, was formed in 1992 in response to the remarkable growth of interest in music of the baroque, and to provide period performance outside London and the South East. The band is based on the immensely popular trio sonata format: two violins, viola da gamba  and continuo (theorbo or baroque guitar); with mezzo soprano. What is exciting about this group is that the director, Martyn Hodgson, devotes considerable time to researching and  this performance at Wentworth will include some rarely heard and newly discovered music from the period.

In the seventeenth century much of Europe was in turmoil, but there was also a flowering of innovative artistic expression.  In tonight’s concert, ARIOSO performs early baroque works mostly by English and German speaking composers who lived through these troubled times and enthusiastically took up these innovations adapting the new style to their particular national tastes. Particularly noteable is Lanier's much praised 'Hero's Lament' - a sort of mini-opera and incredibly popular.

Tickets cost £8 (or £7 for concessions) and are available from Wentworth Village shop, or by contacting Richard Taylor on 01709 527713.

Any unsold tickets will be  available on the door (subject to availability)

Series tickets that cover all events/concerts in this year's music festival cost £25, (£23 for concessions)
