International Concert Series: Classical Roadmap Talks - The Concerto
Thursday 12 March, 6.00pm
Presented by Dr Jonathan James and joined by Christiana Mavron on violin.
The concerto is often the most breathtaking piece on the programme, with soloists showing off their mettle. We’ll see how the concerto grew from its beginnings in the 1600s through to its hey-day in the Romantic period, and enjoy some more modern showpieces too, with audio illustrations and demonstrations at the piano. Suitable for the complete novice and seasoned concert-goers.
With fun live illustrations on piano and with guest musicians and a potpouri of audio excerpts, these light-hearted presentations will help you join the dots in classical music history and introduce you to a whole new world of listening. Suitable for the complete novice and seasoned concert-goers.
