2017 July Ashley SolomonPoster here
Ashley Solomon (of Florilegium) directs an attractive programme, understandably with prominent flute parts, and plays, himself, one of Quantz's 300 delightful flute concertos. 
Deborah Miles-Johnson (Mezzo) sings the heart-rending 'Che faro' from Orphée et Eurydice by Gluck and we play the dances of the Furies and the Blessed Spirits. 
The symphony developed in the 18th century from the simple Italian 3 movement form used as an overture to operas. It gradually became more developed with composers such as Stamitz. Haydn invested it with its sophistication that led to the great symphonists of the romantic era.
We play a rather serious but beautiful 2 movement sinfonia by WF Bach, one of JS Bach's sons, an exciting symphony by London's Thomas Arne published in 1767 and an early, joyful and sparkling symphony by Haydn himself in 1761, full of colour and lively solo passages. 
A perfect summer concert!
