Boxwood and Brass: A Georgian Country House Christmas

Emily Worthington, Katherine Spencer clarinets
Richard Bayliss, Kate Goldsmith
Robert Percival

Christmas in late-18th century England was a time for the upper classes to give lavish balls and parties at their country estates. Praised for ‘spectacular playing’ (Early Music Today) and ‘button-bright performances’ (Gramophone), period wind ensemble Boxwood & Brass bring a taste of the elegant, presenting music that accompanied the festivities. Their ‘Band of Musick’, a traditional Georgian militia ensemble of clarinets, horns and bassoon, will regale you with quintets, marches, dance music and regional carols fit for the gallery of Pemberley itself!

Programme includes:

  • J C Bach Military Quintets
  • Attr. Mahon Quintet from The Clarinet Instructor
  • Brookes Select Pieces for a Military Band

Performed together with solos, duets, cotillions, and carols.

Venue: Barber Concert Hall, Barber Institute of Fine Arts
