Yesterday we gave a string duet concert in Leicester at All Saints Church. The programme was mainly baroque music and included our own arrangements of Clarke’s Prince of Denmark’s March, Corelli’s Violin Sonata No 1, Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, Purcell’s Fairest Isle (one of my favourites at the moment), some of Bach’s two part inventions, Pachelbel’s Canon and Vivaldi’s Gloria.
After the concert we chatted to Father Martin who had been a professional cellist before he joined the church and had taught at the Menhuin School. This was an occasion where you are suddenly alarmingly aware that some of your audience have been extremely knowledgeable – but Father Martin was very generous and we came away with happy memories of the event.
