We now have the programme for the concert on 22 April, by Retorica, who are a violin duo. See here for information about the concert and the musicians. It looks great, so put it in your diary now! As usual, the concert is in St Andrew’s Church, Curry Rivel, starting at 7 pm.


Reminder, and news of RNLI concert

Don’t forget the Curry Rivel Music concert this Saturday. Here are a couple of reviews of the ensemble to help persuade you:

“How often do you hear a whole programme of music that you’ve never heard, played on instruments that you’ve never heard and find the entire experience bewitching!” – Audience member

“Uniquely enchanting sound, fresh and delightful programme, faultless ensemble ….. The best performance of any kind I have heard in years” – Isabel Farrell (ex-manager, Live Music Now! Northwest)


You might also be interested in the following, which we have received in our inbox from the Somerton & Langport Area Branch RNLI:

We are extremely fortunate to have the world famous trumpeter CRISPIAN STEELE-PERKINS accompanied by the equally distinguished pianist Leslie Pearson playing a medley of classical & contemporary music from Handel to Bernstein together with his highly acclaimed demonstration of the techniques used to perform the famous trumpet tunes of the 17th & 18th centuries.

Programme for Trumpet & Organ Concert, 15 October, available

We now have the programme for the trumpet and organ concert on Saturday 15 October, and it looks wonderful! Everything from my favourite baroque composers to 20th century pieces inspired by the stained-glass windows of Marc Chagall (which I also love, so I’m really looking forward to that). And they are also playing Rachmaninov’s “Vocalise”, which we heard in the last concert on clarinet and piano, so it will be interesting to compare that with the sound from two rather different instruments!

Put it in your diaries now!
