The Vauxhall Band Basset Horn Trio
Highgate Salon Concert & Supper

The Vauxhall Band Basset Horn Trio perform in the Salon Music concert series in Highgate, London. Enjoy an 18th-century themed dinner after the concert, included in the ticket price.

A wooden, single reed wind instrument, closely related to the clarinet, the basset horn was mostly heard in the late 18th and early 19th centuries in Austria and Germany, with historical evidence dating the earliest known instruments to the 1760’s.

When Czech musicians Messrs Dworschak, David and Springer came to London in 1791 and performed at Vauxhall Gardens as a Basset Horn Trio, the instrument was relatively new to London. These mysterious and unusual sounding instruments with their colourful, earthy tones created great interest.  The Vauxhall Band Basset Horn Trio will explore the repertoire that the original trio may have performed on their arrival in London.
