Cellist and director of Divertimento Vicky Evans, has some news about forthcoming chamber-music events in the area, over the coming months, Vicky writes:
On Sunday March 3, the Devon Telemann Ensemble, which includes several of our regular Divertimento musicians, will be performing at St John’s Church, Bridgetown, Totnes, at 3pm.
‘The lively and beautiful music will be played by violins, recorder, viola, ‘cello, double bass and harpsichord, and the composers are Telemann, Bach, Handel, Dittersdorf and Mancini. Tickets cost £13 on the door.’
Meanwhile, at 3pm on Sunday March 10, Divertimento String Quartet will give the final performance of its recent programme at Minstrels Music Centre, a lovely venue out in the countryside between Bude and Launceston.
Here’s a recent comment about the programme from one of our audience…. “This was a wonderful concert. The programme is brilliant…. Mozart being quirky, the brilliance of young Britten, and the shimmering beauty of Debussy – you are in for such a treat!”
