Trinity-Henleaze URC, Waterford Road, Henleaze, Bristol BS9 4BT

Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 6 in B flat major BWV 1051
Vivaldi
Flute Concerto in C minor RV441
Biber Battalia
Handel Concerto Grosso Op.6 No.11
Bach Oboe and Violin Concerto

Roger Armstrong flute, Roger Huckle violin, Imogen Triner oboe

A captivating programme of sparkling instrumental music from the Baroque period. Bach’s sixth Brandenburg Concerto is scored for violas and cellos so has a mellow sonority but is unfailingly upbeat and joyous in mood. Biber’s famous Battalia is wonderfully engaging – dedicated to Bacchus, the god of wine, vegetation and theatre, it features many non-traditional musical techniques including striking the bow on the instruments, and snare-drum effects with paper woven through strings. Principals of the Bristol Ensemble perform concertos by Bach and Vivaldi.
