Totnes Early Music Society – Duo Dorado


Event Date:

9th March


Overview

A Celebration of Bach –

Some glorious music from the composer described in his day as ‘the Miracle of Leipzig’. From violin sonatas with basso continuo to solos for each instrument, the programme ranges in colour, texture and mood, and includes the great Sonata in A major for violin and keyboard, the beautiful G major Basso Continuo Sonata, and a highlight from The Art of Fugue.

The concert organisers at Totnes Early Music Society are thrilled to bring Hazel Brooks (baroque violin) and David Pollock (harpsichord) back after a ten year gap. They have performed extensively in the UK and beyond, and their current project exploring 17th century English repertoire has led to some ground-breaking recordings, the latest being The Unknown Purcell for Chandos.

The concert is at St. Mary’s Church in Totnes and starts at 7.30pm

Advance tickets available from the Dartington Box Office (01803 847070), and website (boxoffice@dartington.org) £13, under 18s £5. On the door £14/£5.
