21 October: Telemann in Paris

Saturday 21 October, 7:30pm

The early music ensemble Follia mark the 250th anniversary of the death of Georg Philipp Telemenn, including a selection of his ground-breaking 'Paris Quartets', together with music by his French contemporaries.

William Summers (baroque flute/recorder)
Diane Moore (baroque violin)
Ibrahim Aziz (viloa da gamba)
Yeo Yat-Soon (harpsichord)

This is what we do best at Music at King Charles: baroque music in a baroque church, played on period instruments - the architecture and acoustics suit the music perfectly.

Tickets: £12.50 (£11 in advance from www.ticketsource.co.uk/mkctw)

Follia specialise in period music played in historic venues, so King Charles in a natural choice. They have recently been playing at Lauderdale House, the Handel House Museum, Garrick's Temple and Walpole's house at Strawberry Hill.  You can hear the group play some samples of this music at their website here.
