Sounding the Salon: ‘An Evening with the Gladstones’

This exciting event is happening on Thursday (8 March, 2018) at the British Academy at Carlton House Terrace. It’s a re-creation, in the original space, of a concert that took place in 1873, the details of which come from the diary of Mary Gladstone (1847-1927). The performance will include violin sonatas by Le Clair, Handel, Beethoven; Spohr ‘Barcarole’; three Brahms Hungarian Dances. The event has been organised by Professor Phyllis Weliver of St Louis University and Dr Sophie Fuller of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance.

I’ll be putting up photographs after the performance. Click the link below for more details.
