Join us for a glass of prosecco at this rush-hour concert of music inspired by Italy, the country described by Goethe as the ‘Promised Land’, and eternal source of inspiration for composers. All written by non-Italians, the programme ranges from Bach’s Italian Concerto to Liszt’s operatic Petrarch Sonnets and Mendelssohn’s Gondola Songs. Salute!
We are teaming up with Pizza Express for a meal between this concert and ‘Under the Starry Skies’. Reserve a place by emailing us; we’ll ask you to pre-order your food, and this will ensure you have time to eat between concerts! Sure to be a sociable occasion with other festival-goers.
