An Italian in Paris

Thursday 7 May, 7.30 pm

The Cobbe Collection, Hatchlands Park, East Clandon, GU4 7RT

Works by the first composers in France to explore the Italian style, this concert features Élisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, celebrated in the year of her 350th anniversary. More than a mere ‘woman composer’ (though she was, and under difficult conditions), Jacquet de La Guerre’s music is consistently rich, surprising, and rewarding. This is a rare chance to hear her music played in concert. Find out more
