A double Christmas treat

A double Christmas treat from Bath Recitals

Bath Recitals presents a double bill this Christmas with two fabulous concerts in the heart of the city. 

On 10 December one of the UK’s foremost young ensembles will be performing in the intimate surrounding of the Old Theatre Royal when the Piatti Quartet bring an exciting programme of string quartets to the city. 

The Piatti Quartet will present a varied programme from the classical period with Josef Haydn, to the English pastoral of Frank Bridge and to the current day for an enjoyable new piece by John Hawkins along with Franz Schubert’s magnificent Quintet with guest cellist Ella Rundle:


Prizewinners at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition and with a host of awards and recordings to their name, the Piatti have since given over 60 concerts in the UK and abroad, including many new collaborations, radio broadcasts, 2 commissions, and recording projects.

A week later on 18 December Belinda Sykes leads the five female vocalists and instrumentalists of Joglaresa as they return by popular demand to present a Yuletide feast with a difference when their national tour of Caroles of Nunnes and Roses comes to Bath. 

This concert sees a welcome return to the glorious Pump Room with a festive offering with Christmas lullabies, nowells, medieval chants and wassails all accompanied by fidel, harp, dulcimer and percussion.

David Gregory, chairman of Bath Recitals, said: “This is a really exciting double bill bringing one of our most successful and diverse concerts season’s to date to a grand finale.”
