Intimate Notes

This 'Intimate Notes' concert showcases our historical instruments at their very best. With a selection of solo pieces and works for small groups of musicians, you will really hear the timbres and textures of each instrument.

If you've never heard historical instruments before, this is a great introduction to the different sounds of the instruments as well as some of the great composers of the Baroque era.
