About the Event

Featuring four of the UK’s leading professional recorder players,  Fontanella entertains audiences of all ages with a musical repertoire  spanning more than seven hundred years. Performing on an array of  recorders of every shape and size, from a beautiful 15-piece renaissance  consort, to a set of quirky Paetzold ‘square’ basses, our concert  programmes typically feature many styles of music, from early court  dances and renaissance polyphony through to jazz arrangements, folk  music sets and intriguing modern works by living composers.

The group has a long history of performing, broadcasting and  recording across Britain and Europe, entertaining audiences at  specialist early music venues, music clubs and festivals alike. The  individual members of the ensemble also all have diverse and busy  performing careers, ranging from working with ensembles including the  Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and The Sixteen, appearing in film  and TV recordings, performing with leading historical chamber music  ensembles and working with electronic music. In 2021 the group featured  in Channel 4’s show ‘8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown’.

Admission to this concert is £15 for adults, £7.50 for students and children admitted free of charge.
