Baroque Tales

Time to enjoy music with a ‘twist’

Join us for Baroque Tales on 26 August – Music with a TWIST – our summer musical party with Baroque-themed cocktails and canapés…

This creative young chamber ensemble are dedicated to bringing early music to new audiences in extraordinary venues. Musica Poetica have been taking London by storm with their monthly recital series celebrating the music of a little known composer – Franz Tunder – who had a huge influence on the music of JS Bach.

But there’s more than just the music: this early music group also creates a unique evening’s entertainment presenting early music in the context of the period.

“An early-instrument ensemble of exceptional quality.” – Opera Britannica

Musica Poetica

On 26 August Musica Poetica take us on a 17th and 18th century whirlwind tour of Europe with Baroque Tales bringing some of this wonderful music to life in a new way. The five core members of Musica Poetica present a line up of violin, cello/viola da gamba, keyboards, soprano and bass-baritone vocals.

Your ticket includes a complimentary Baroque-themed cocktail with canapés to ensure our summer musical party goes off with a swing.
