202426oct7:30 pmAutumn leaves - a concert of mists and mellow fruitfulness

Event Details

Much of the programme comes from the late romantic period – a time when soundscapes were a little like Monet’s “Lily” paintings. Gentle and evocative music, bringing to mind walks through copper and russet coloured leaves on woodland floors. The quieter dawn period, when the birdsong of spring and summer is fading into distant memory.

We are very fortunate to have the Portuguese composer Duarte Lobo’s Requiem because of the destruction of huge swathes of Portugal in 1755. Much of the country was flattened in the earthquake, firestorms raged and a devastating tsunami followed.

We won’t promise you an earthquake – just the opposite in fact with a programme of soothing beauty.
