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

2019 – our events at Malone House were on Tuesday 19 February and Tuesday 26 March.

We played two programmes based around the two lovely viola sonatas by Brahms. Other music included works by Schubert, Saint-Saëns, Grieg and Arvo Pärt.

As always we introduced the music with images and words – words from the composers, their friends and their enemies. Dinner was served in the interval, for a lovely relaxed evening in beautiful surroundings.
