Quartets at Burghley House Stamford

Yesterday we played quartets at Burghley House Stamford. The architecture of  this Elizabethan stately home is extraordinary and as you drive through the grounds it is almost impossible not to stop the car and gaze in admiration!

The programme
We played in the Great Hall and the minstrels’ gallery, and, as well are normally a duo,  were joined by two members of the excellent Bingham String Quartet – leader Steve Bingham and the violist Brenda Stewart. The programme included Mozart’s Divertimenti, Eine Kleine Nacht Musik and Alleluila, Handel’s Water Music and Vivaldi’s Seasons as well as other well known classical tunes plus songs from West Side Story, Les Miserables and Fiddler on the Roof.

The setting
This was an especially elegant  and impressive venue and it was a pleasure to play in such a spectacular setting.
