Antony and Friends
Antony and Friends Season 2018 - 19
Thanks to all of you who have supported these concerts over the last few years and helped to make them a regular feature in the Todmorden musical calendar!
The next Antony and Friends informal chamber music concert will be on Saturday 8th December 2018 at Todmorden Central Methodist Church at 7.30 pm.
The next concert will include the brilliant clarinettist Rachael Gibbon. Details of the programme are to be finalised, but one of the main works will be the lovely sonata by Saint-Saens. The broad theme of the concert will be French music - some familiar and some not.
The first two dates for 2019 have now been confirmed.
On January 26th I shall be joined by regulars Andrew Rostron (violin), Robin Pennie (viola) and David Leys (cello). Again full programme details will follow but one of the works to be performed will be Schumann's Piano Quartet. Whilst it is not as well-known as his piano quintet it is nevertheless a charming work with a beautifully melodic slow movement.
Never heard of a flute and percussion duo? Where have you been?
Here is your chance to try that out as my guests for the second 2019 concert on Saturday 23 February are virtuoso flautist Lynda Robertson and my brother Chris Brannick on percussion.
Both have played previously at Antony and Friends concerts but this is a first for them to play together. As usual, with Chris being involved the later stages of the concert could be rather interesting!
Further details will follow but please make a note of these dates.
As usual the concerts take place at the Central Methodist Church in Todmorden and start at 7.30 pm. Admission is free and a retiring collection is taken. Refreshments are provided
