Programme Note

Critically acclaimed group The Brook Street Band revive the thrilling music-making scene of Handelian London with a programme of sonatas and solos.

The cello enjoyed a huge surge in popularity in eighteenth-century England, becoming the string instrument of choice for many a fashionable Londoner, along with the harpischord. Performing works by composers such as Handel, Arne, Cervetto and Geminiani, Tatty Theo and Carolyn Gibley of The Brook Street Band explore the rich cultural and musical possibilities that led such a diverse group of men, from different countries and religious backgrounds, to chose London as their home.
