    Music ‘A la mode’: Entertainments for an English Gentleman

    The eighteenth century saw a rapid rise in ‘genteel’ music-making in England, fuelled both by an easy availability of sheet music and a new fashion for amateur instrument playing. Popular arias from London’s opera houses and pleasure gardens were eagerly re-created in the domestic setting, whilst the larger country houses could play host to some of the famous musicians of the day. Passacaglia’s programme includes small-scale music by both native and ‘adopted’ English composers (including Arne, Handel and Geminiani), together with a helping of music in the highly fashionable Scottish folk style.

    7.30pm

    Brighton Early Music Festival

    St Martin's Church, Brighton

    Looking more like a Kraftwerk gig than a classical concert, and with boundary-crossing audience appeal, this event brings Bach’s eternal music to everyone. The band is made up of some of the UK’s best harpsichordists and baroque specialists who bring their combined skill and imagination to this thrilling re-colouring of Bach’s masterpieces.
