Intrada: Trio Sonata in DThe Brook Street Band presents a lively and entertaining ‘travelogue’ that takes us to Europe’s most distinguished courts and fashionable cities. The itinerary follows in the footsteps of Patrick Home, the commissioner of Paxton House: student years in Leipzig, first love at the court of Frederick the Great, and numerous Grand Tours to artists studios and Roman ruins throughout Italy.
The programme includes music by Frederick the Great, who was to play a crucial part in Patrick’s life, and an exuberant Sonata from Handel’s early years that brings a strong Italian flavour to the proceedings.
“…a lovely combination of virtuosity and vibrancy…” Planet Hugill
