2018-19 SEASON EVENTS
Saturday 9th March, St Mary’s Church, 7.30pm
A Celebration of Bach
This concert had to be CANCELLED due to illness, but is now scheduled to be part of the 2019/20 season to be launched here at the end of June.
Some glorious music from the composer described in his day as ‘the Miracle of Leipzig’, From violin sonatas with basso continuo to solos for each instrument, this wide-ranging programme includes the great Sonata in A major for violin and keyboard, the beautiful G major Basso Continuo Sonata, and a highlight from The Art of Fugue.
We are thrilled to bring Hazel Brooks (baroque violin) and David Pollock (harpsichord) back to TEMS after a ten year gap. They have performed extensively in the UK and beyond, and their current project exploring 17th century English repertoire has led to some ground-breaking recordings, the latest being The Unknown Purcell for Chandos.

Blast from the Past
From the 14th to the 18th century, wind music could be heard everywhere from grand state occasions to the humblest village dance. Syrinx aim to recreate this impressive tradition playing bagpipes, shawms, dulcians, deutsche schalmei, baroque oboes and bassoon: their repertoire covers the rise of the professional wind band, with music from early anonymous masters, Dufay and Morley through to Handel and Telemann.
Syrinx received acclaim for their first album, The Saxon Alternative. Members play with leading period orchestras including the Academy of Ancient Music, The OAE, and the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, and in ensembles such as I Fagiolini, Mediva, Blondel and Concentus VII. For more, click here
