Description

7.00pm drinks reception for 7.30pm concert.

An evening concert including pieces by Joseph Hayden and Ignaz Pleyel, the Jane Austen Suite by Philip Andrews, the Battle of Prague by Frantisek Kotzwara, and readings from Jane Austen’s novels and letters. The music in this concert focuses on composers represented in the Austen family music books, a collection of eighteen books owned by members of the Austen family. Overall, these books contain nearly 600 pieces of music, mainly songs, but also some instrumental music, from both European and British popular composers. Some of the pieces were copied into the books by Jane herself.

Performed by Jude Barnby (cello), Joanna Jones (flute), Rosalyn Jones (flute and clarinet), Michael Kenning (piano), Theresa Lunn (soprano), Victoria Stapleton (violin) and Paul Wright (organ and piano). Readings by Dorothy Smith and Linton Hall Davis.
