Italian Hour programme announced

Ciao! New Paths is thrilled to announce the programme of its Friday evening rush hour concert, Italian Hour.  Birthplace of the Renaissance and opera, and the climax of the Grand Tour, Italy has captivated artists and musicians for centuries with its beauty and culture.  We celebrate this eternal source of inspiration in a joyous programme of music by non-Italians.

The concert opens with Bach’s sunny Italian Concerto played by harpsichordist Christopher Bucknall and closes with Stravinsky’s suave Suite Italienne played by violinist Alexandra Caldon.  Along the way we hear a performance by tenor Stuart Jackson of the epic song ‘Pace non trovo’ from Liszt’s Tre Sonetti di Petraca, and soprano Katherine Crompton sings songs from Wolf’s Italienisches Liederbuch

Join us for a glass of prosecco, let your imagination be captured by this alluring music and be transported to the Mediterranean.
