The proceeds of the concerts are in aid of the Ukraine Appeal, and the highlight of the programme will be a beautiful new piece especially composed for the orchestra by Daniele, inspired by the traditional Ukrainian melody ‘Hutsulka Ksenya’.
The programme will include the well-known Concerto in G major for two mandolins by Vivaldi, and a new arrangement for two guitar soloists of the Concerto in D major BWV 972 by J. S. Bach, which was Bach’s transcription of a concerto for solo violin by Vivaldi. Also by Bach, the lovely Largo from the Concerto in D minor for two violins.
The duo will play pieces inspired by Italian and English folk songs, as well as a number of Daniele’s compositions for two guitars recorded on their acclaimed CD Duo Sfera. All in all it promises to be a summer evening of wonderfully relaxing music. If you love the sound of classical guitar please come along to support live music and a great cause!
Both concerts start at 7.30pm, tickets are £10 available on the door, with pre-concert and interval refreshments available for a small contribution. If you would like to reserve places please email me at email@example.com or text 07769 676357. We look forward to seeing you!
