Sound the trumpet!
Saturday 7 October, 7.30 pm
St John’s Downshire Hill, Hampstead, London NW3 1NU
To mark our twentieth anniversary, we present an all-Bach programme: two joyous, well-known cantatas, complemented by two celebrated instrumental works. ‘Weichet nur betrübte Schatten’ is a wedding canata for solo soprano voice; ‘Jauchzet Gott’ gives virtuosic parts to solo soprano and trumpet. The trumpet is featured also in Brandenburg Concerto no. 2. This will be a special, celebratory event – with extra features to be revealed on the night.
