"more basset horn music in 45 minutes than you'll probably hear in the rest of your life"

It was a rare treat to hear some #bassethorn trios this afternoon and we're looking forward to some Italian #baroque tomorrow as our South Stoke Series continues!


[That’s my happy face to know that I’ll be playing Beethoven’s Romance in F Major coming Saturday in @arundelfestival with my beloved @TheHanoverBand under the awessieome @BenjaminBayl]

Can't wait until Sunday to hear Colin Lawson? You don't have to! Come along for a RARE OPPORTUNITY to hear him play in a trio of basset horns with Margaret Archibald and Elliot Gresty tomorrow at the opening of our South Stoke Series

The Hanover Band

HANOVER (Not Hannover; Germany) In terms of British history the majority of the music we play is from the Hanoverian period. Hanover also refers to Hanover Square in London, where Haydn performed his symphonies and arias in the Salomon Concerts in the 1790’s.

BAND (ref: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians)
‘An instrumental ensemble, larger than a chamber ensemble. Thus the ’24 violins’ of Louis XIV were called ‘la grande bande’ to distinguish them from Lully’s ‘petits violons’, and Charles II’s similar ensemble was known as ‘the King’s Band’. By extension, ‘band’ came to mean an orchestra in colloquial British usage’.

THE HANOVER BAND a period name for a period orchestra.
