CGS Performers

Our last concert was on Mon 16th Jun by Gaëlle Solal (photo above taken at her Canterbury concert), an outstanding concert which included Partita No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1004, for solo violin, whose last movement, the Chaconne, is generally reckoned to be one of the finest pieces of music ever written, its length surpassing the duration of the previous four movements combined.

Our next concert is on November 17th, by the Swiss guitarist Christoph Denoth. Details are currently being finalised, but the programme is likely to include some Dowland. Tickets will be £10 (concessions £8) - watch this space!
