Arioso Baroque Ensemble [Music Festival 2015]

Saturday 26th September at 7.30pm

[This event forms part of our Music Festival for 2015]

The acclaimed early chamber music group, ARIOSO, was formed in 1992 in response to the remarkable growth of interest in music of the baroque, and to provide period performance outside London and the South East. The band is based on the immensely popular trio sonata format: two violins, viola da gamba  and continuo (theorbo or baroque guitar); with mezzo soprano. What is exciting about this group is that the director, Martyn Hodgson, devotes considerable time to researching and  this performance at Wentworth will include some rarely heard and newly discovered music from the period.

In the seventeenth century much of Europe was in turmoil, but there was also a flowering of innovative artistic expression.  In tonight’s concert, ARIOSO performs early baroque works mostly by English and German speaking composers who lived through these troubled times and enthusiastically took up these innovations adapting the new style to their particular national tastes. Particularly noteable is Lanier's much praised 'Hero's Lament' - a sort of mini-opera and incredibly popular.

Tickets cost £8 (or £7 for concessions) and are available from Wentworth Village shop, or by contacting Richard Taylor on 01709 527713.

Any unsold tickets will be  available on the door (subject to availability)

Series tickets that cover all events/concerts in this year's music festival cost £25, (£23 for concessions)

Simon Lindley is a graduate of the Royal Schools of Music and spent his early career in London working with a number of churches, most notably at Westminster and St. Albans Cathedrals, and was organ tutor at the Royal School of Church Music’s College of St. Nicolas. He moved North to Leeds Minster in 1975 and was then appointed Leeds City Organist, holding both positions to this day. He has worked as a senior lecturer at Leeds Polytechnic and Senior Music officer for Leeds City Council, and been active in Lodges, serving as Grand Organist to the United Grand Lodge of England in 2010-12. 



He devotes a considerable amount of time to Yorkshire music, being conductor of the Sheffield Bach Choir and Doncaster Choral Society, and former chorus master and now life vice-President of Halifax Choral Society and Leeds Philharmonic Chorus, along with numerous other activities. It is his prolific recordings for Naxos and Chandos for which he is particularly well known.

Tickets cost £7 (or £6 for concessions) and are available from Wentworth Village shop, or by contacting Richard Taylor on 01709 527713.

Any unsold tickets will be  available on the door (subject to availability)
