Early Bird's next concert, on Sunday 12th January, is an especially exciting one, as they will be welcoming virtuoso baroque bassoon player Ursula Leveaux for the first time. Well-known world-wide as concerto soloist and principal bassoon with the Academy of Ancient Music, she is also a regular member of The English Concert.
Baroque violinist Jean Paterson will be returning to perform an exquisite sonata by J.S. Bach, with harpsichordist Sharon Gould. Recorder star Rebecca Prosser will again lead her flock of recorders to heights of brilliance and expression rarely reached on the instrument.
In addition to the Bach, the afternoon concert will include music by Vivaldi and Telemann, with rarely-heard gems by Giovanni Legrenzi and Johann Fasch. And, of course, there will be a little folk music (this time from the 17th century) and a chirrup of birdsong....
