Valencia Baryton Trio

A rare opportunity to hear and see a baryton, an extraordinary string instrument that was favoured and played by Prince Nicholas at the Court in Esterhazy. Haydn composed some 80 string quartets, 104 symphonies, but in a golden decade (1765-75), he wrote nearly 200 works featuring the baryton, including 123 Trios. Luigi Tomasini, born in Pesaro, was leader of the orchestra at Esterhazy and the Austrian virtuoso gamba player Andreas Lidl eventually moved to London where he died in 1789.

The Valencia Trio regularly tours North and South America and in Europe and in June 2023 gave two concerts in the English Haydn Festival in Bridgnorth.
