Mr Dulcken’s Concert

Dear Emily,

Just to let you know Mr Dulcken had his first trip out last weekend.  He was the solo harpsichord in a concert with Warwickshire Baroque orchestra.  It took place in Holy Trinity Church in Coventry last Saturday.

Here’s a link to the orchestra’s website.

We borrowed a piano trolley and had lots of people to help the loading in Devon and at the concert venue.

It all went well, after we sorted the balance and acoustics.  We ended up playing with Mr Dulcken’s lid up, facing sideways, so the sound went towards the audience.

Here’s some photos- lid on the short stick for the picture.

Rosemary Robinson – soloist Bach harpsichord Concerto in D minor. .

Best wishes,

Jacqui and Michael

A rare concerto for Viola da Gamba…

Not a lot is known about Anton Milling apart from the fact that he lived during the second half of the 18th century. However, his Concerto in D minor for Viola da Gamba is delightful and once again Jacqui Robertson-Wade is the soloist on 28 April, following a great performance of the Telemann Concerto in A minor (together with recorder player Katie Allsop) last summer at Haddon Hall in Derbyshire.
