A GLORIOUS late Autumn afternoon concert of wonderful Baroque music performed by Suite 415 will be held at the Tatham Art Gallery on Sunday, 9 June from noon.

Suite 415 comprises an affiliation of some of the province’s most accomplished and respected classical and Baroque musicians: Margrit Deppe (Baroque Oboe); Aristide du Plessis (Baroque Cello / Basso Continuo), David Smith (Harpsichord / Cembalo) and Evelien Ballantine (Baroque Flute / Traverso).

The programme features a carefully chosen pieces of beautiful works by leading Baroque composers GP Telemann; Pietro Locatelli, JS Bach and GB Sammartini.

This follows on from the first glorious concert done at Christ the Redeemer Church, where David Smith beautifully performed on a lovingly restored, beautifully- decorated harpsicord in the Flemish style, recently acquired by Deppe. The completion of the restoration process was the inspiration behind the first concert and has since lead to another grand performance at Tatham.

The distinctive sound of the harpsichord creates an almost-immediate association with music from the Baroque era. Harpsichords were used extensively from the 15th until the 18th centuries and has found favour again in recent decades. Deppe’s beautiful new harpsichord will be the centrepiece of this sublime programme of memorable music.

Tickets are R80 at the door or through and the concert will take place at the Tatham Art Gallery on Chief Albert Luthuli Street, Pietermaritzburg.
