With Musicke in the Ayre

Peto Gardens at Iford Manor, Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire

2pm - 3pm

Celebrating Strozzi 400 with the gorgeous arias, duets and trios from her birthplace

The 400th anniversary of Barbara Strozzi's birth give us another reason to indulge in some glorious music from Venice, this time exploiting the potential of 3 sopranos with continuo. The programme includes sacred and secular works by her, together with works by Monteverdi, Grandi and her teacher Cavalli. Musicke in the Ayre's Bath-based team (Maria Danishvar, Jane Hunt and Philippa Neaverson) are thrilled to return with Din Ghani and his archlute to Iford with their highly successful trio partnership. They will explore some new repertoire while revisiting some of their favourites. The performance will take place in the Casita within the Peto Garden - seating is in the open.

This event is a reschedule of the concert originally planned for 17th August

The same programme will be performed at this concert in Bath

Free with garden entry
