Concert Synopsis

for hatfield section

Hatfield House has a long association with music and is a wonderful venue for the festival, just 25 minutes by train from London King’s Cross. In its fifth anniversary year, Guy Johnston’s Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival will be rounding off 2016 in style. The grand finale will be a performance of Bach’s Magnificat in D major, given by the Festival Orchestra and The Bach Choir Voices, under conductor Terry Edwards.

The programme also features Melvyn Tan and Maggie Cole playing a CPE Bach Concerto for Harpsichord and Mozart’s Sonata for Four Hands k.521. Other artists appearing this year include trumpeter Alison Balsom, tenor James Gilchrist and the Navarro String Quartet with Juliet Stevenson.
