Gabriel – An Entertainment with Trumpet

Loading Events

Alison Balsom’s resplendent performances of music by Purcell and Handel give heart and soul to a bustling, exuberant entertainment. Experience a breathtaking evocation of London of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, through the eyes and ears of a court trumpeter. Monarchs and watermen cross paths amidst the clamour, diversity and glorious chaos that characterised the city, as we bring to life some of its finest music in a thrilling production by Dominic Dromgoole.

The mood rises to so transcendent a strain of melancholy sweetness that I swear you melt, absolutely melt.
