Berkeley Ensemble                  12th Nov 2018 at St Augustine’s Church Map

Music on Monday regulars return with another imaginative programme. This time they play Schubert’s epic Octet for strings, clarinet, horn and bassoon. They also offer a new commission by British composer John Woolrich.

‘His music whispers, whirrs, rustles, creaks, and shines with a gentle light, often elegiacal. It is not music of long line, full-throated song, bright hard clarity, physical exuberance. Its characteristic movement is shy, blinking in the sun, attuned better to half lights.’ Robin Holloway

‘…the high quality of the performances by the Berkeley Ensemble, a malleable group which plays as if it were truly inside the music.’
