Series NINE of Music in New Malden began in fine style yesterday with a concert featuring oboist Michal Rogalski, cellist Kate Conway and harpsichordist Katarzyna Kowalik. They treated us to a programme of ‘Baroque Virtuosity’, exploring music from Venice and Paris, ending with Marais’ extraordinary variations on Les Folies d’Espagne. And, for the first time at MiNM, we had a programme illustrated (as you can see in the picture) with images from the Venetian and French courts.
Thanks to all who attended for the generous donations to Macmillan Cancer Care!
In next month’s concert (Sunday 6 November, 3pm), we take a musical tour of Portugal in the 18th and 19th centuries with soprano Iria Perestrelo.
