A Cabinet of Musical Delights, Ad Hoc Baroque Sunday July 16th 6.00 pm followed by a Supper
The period instrument ensemble ‘Ad Hoc Baroque’ returnsto the roots of public concert performance when they visit The Bruce Arms for a pre-supper recital of 18thcentury instrumental music.
The origins of the modern public concert developed as composers and their friends left the confines of court life ‘gigging’ at their local hostelry. Until the late 17th century performance of classical music was largely restricted to private performance for the Aristocracy. By the 18th-century musical gatherings would be held in the upper rooms of the local inn and a charge made for admission. As the popularity of the public performances developed concert and assembly rooms were built to accommodate the growing audience.
In this evening’s performance Ad Hoc Baroque will bring a flavour of 18th Century musical life, recreating a programme of music contemporary with the opening of The Bruce Arms in 1760.
Ad Hoc Baroque brings together specialists in historical musical performance using instruments of the period (or modern reproductions) for this performance they will be using recorders, baroque violins, viola da gamba and harpsichord.
