Concerto Cristofori at Saffron, Walden & District Music Club (Essex)

Continental flavours

Sharona Joshua harpsichord, fortepiano
Peter Hanson violin
Nia Harries cello

Haydn Trio in F major Hob. XV/17 (fortepiano, violin & cello)
JS Bach Sonata in A major BWV.1015 (violin and obbligato harpsichord)
Handel Harpsichord Suite in E major NO.148 (solo harpsichord)
Boccherini Sonata in A major (cello and harpsichord continuo)
Mozart Piano Trio in C major K 548 (fortepiano, violin & cello)

A cornucopia of musical genres from the continent, throughout a century. A fusion of High baroque and Early Classical repertoire highlighting the stylistic transition from one to the other. Breathtaking Sonatas and Suites feature alongside fresh, youthful Trios – riches of sound to suit all tastes, and allure the senses.

“Rarely have I enjoyed such excellent artists, each with an individual voice and rich instrumental sonority expressing musical ideas and emotions in such an unaffected manner. In ensemble every nuance and shading remained clear, almost conversation like, as one instrument interacted with the other, yet managing to preserve its own identity. Bravo!”
Maestro di Canto – Oleg Lapa
