Recently chosen by the Making Music Concert Promoters' Group as selected artists for 2015/16, Ensemble DeNOTE return us to the roots of 18th Century music making. They are a period instrument chamber group, specialising in music of the classical period.

Their concert for us will centre on the fortepiano, alone and in combination with violin and cello. This is a rare opportunity to savour the particular qualities of the fortepiano from one of its most distinguished practitioners. John Irving is Professor of Performance Practice at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. He is joined by Marcus Barcham-Stevens, violin, and Jennifer Morsches, cello, both well-known exponents of period stringed instruments.
