In this recital, 400 years of harp music is explored, from the early Italian variations of Frescobaldi, through the outrageous exploits of Nicholas Bochsa, via the impressionistic ‘nymphs and shepherds’ music of Alphonse Hasselmans, to a brand new work written for Marshall in 2015.
When: Sunday 17 July @ 2pm

Ludovico’s Band continues its 2016 series with a journey to Naples – a vibrant musical centre and the birthplace of the music conservatory.
With its own rich folk music tradition, as well as local composers who included Scarlatti, Pergolesi, Bononcini, Porpora, and Durante, there is scarcely a composer of the first half of the settecento (1700s) who was not influenced by Neapolitan music.
