Held monthly at the Ascension Church on Timbercroft Lane, the classical concert season kicked off with The Twisted Twenty in September. The second concert featuring The Albach Duo takes place on Sunday 22nd of October at 4pm.
According to the Plumstead Peculiars, “The Albach Duo is comprised of Rebecca Baulch and David Black, both international prize-winning graduates of the Royal College of Music. The Duo have played at the Houses of Parliament, the Long Room at the Oval, the Orangery at Kew Gardens, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the National Gallery amongst other venues. Their repertoire spans the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and twentieth/twenty-first-century periods and includes an extensive collection of South American and Spanish music.”
The season continues on Sunday 19th of November with Naomi Burrell and Andreas Gilger who present An Enlightened Musical Princess. Plumstead Peculiars describe the concert as “In connection with The Enlightened Princesses exhibition at the Historic Royal Palaces (June 22nd to Nov 12th 2017), Naomi presents a programme of violin and early keyboard exploring the music making of the Royal Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. She married George III in 1761 and was an enthusiastic patron of the arts as well as a fine musician herself, inviting the likes of W.A. Mozart to her court, who dedicated a sonata to her. Naomi and Andreas will also play music by some of Charlotte’s teachers, J.C. Bach and Johann George Linike.”
