Concert #1: Baroque

This concert first aired 25 Sep, watch again here

This autumn the Lit & Phil is delighted to present five specially produced concerts by some of the regions’ most talented professional musicians who have all been Lit & Phil favourites over the years. They reflect the eclectic range of musical styles for which the Lit & Phil is famed.

Audiences can delight in offerings from baroque cello and violin duo Miriam Nohl & Marguerite Wassermann, jazz piano/sax duo Paul Edis & Graeme Wilson, classical violinist John Garner and a player of historic keyboards John Treherne MBE.  The series will culminate with a suitably special finale concert by two extraordinary local pianists, Alison Gill & Yoshie Kawamura playing Saint Saens’ Carnival of the Animals and Faurè’s Dolly Suite.

Each concert will last about thirty minutes and go live on the Lit & Phil’s YouTube channel every Friday lunchtime at 1pm. The concerts are free and will remain on the channel once broadcast. 

Viewers are of course welcome to make a donation to the musicians, or to us if they prefer, to enable us to continue the programme beyond October.

First aired 16 October. Violinist John Garner, the presenter of the fourth concert is one of those musicians who is hard to pigeonhole. He plays the violin, but one time it could be Bach, another jazz, another South Indian music. For this concert he adds a new violin part to some of his own tracks.
