For their latest concert of the year, our exciting new ensemble-in-residence, CantiaQuorum, presents another fascinating and ingenious programme. This time they turn to the 18th century to perform some classics of the baroque, together with a bonus twentieth-century ‘extra’ to complement Telemann’s ‘table-music’. If you came to their last concert you will know the calibre of these outstanding musicians – if you didn’t, you are in for a treat!
