One of the UK's most outstanding period instrument ensembles, the internationally renowned Floriegium come to Hexham with a programme including three of Haydn's London Symphonies, arranged for chamber ensemble by the man who brought the composer to London in the 1790s, Johann Peter Salomon. We will also hear Mozart's first flute quartet.
Florilegium have played in many of the world's leading concert halls, from Sydney Opera House to the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. They were ensemble-in-residence at London's Wigmore Hall from 1998 to 2000 and have been ensemble-in-association at the Royal College of Music since 2008. Many of their recordings have won, or been nominated for, awards.
'Remember their name. They are great poets, magicians who will hypnotise your mind in the magic of their music, touching the very heart of your soul.' - Le Diapason, France
