Concerts

ORION AT MALONE HOUSE
Good music and lovely food in a very stylish setting – the perfect evening out for the music lover.

FORTHCOMING EVENTS

We have planned two evenings at Malone House for the spring of 2017. Leaflets are in the post now.

On 6 March – the music includes a Bach viola da gamba sonata (played on viola), the G minor one that starts in a very similar way to Bach’s 3rd Brandenburgh concerto. Chris will play a solo Partita by Bach. After dinner we will play the Spring sonata(op24) by Beethoven – this is not the name that Beethoven himself gave it…….

On 24 April – Chris will play a Beethoven sonata, op27 no2 – this is popularly known as the Moonlight sonata – another name not given to the piece by Beethoven himself………The two of us will play the Viola sonata by Schostakovich, his last completed work. This is very dramatic, and also very beautiful and tender in parts. It quotes directly from the Moonlight sonata, and was written in homage to Beethoven, a composer who was hugely admired by Shostakovich.
