Concerts at St Clements

Jack Maguire writes....

Apologies for last Tuesday's late interval and many thanks for our audience's patience. The new toilets rose to the occasion. However, be thankful, act 1 of Wagner's Gotterdamerung is 110 minutes long.

Vivaldi wrote concerti for just about every instrument. This Tuesday we hear the virtuoso concerto for "Ottavina", or orchestral Piccolo. Owain Bailey, international flautist, now principal piccolo with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, will also play the "Goldfinch" flute concerto, and Bach's B minor suite featuring the famous Badinerie, championed by James Galway and more recently by Motorola.
The concert starts with the flute quartet in D by Mozart. Cervantes' Don Quixote de la Mancha is celebrated by Telemann in his suite for strings, all accompanied by Stromenti baroque ensemble and Britain's only working Claviorganum, the ornate musical coffin that now lives in St Clements Church and emits 147 different sounds.
Dont forget there is free parking both sides of the church, and a free decorative souvenir programme.
Please forward this message to any music lovers who dont drink tea before concerts.
We would like to thank, on this occasion, the assistance we receive with publicity from staff of Bournemouth Borough Council. These concerts are supported by Boscombe Working Community Partnership and Bournemouth Arts and are free for disabled customers.
To book seats, telephone 01202 399114 or e mail
best wishes
