In association with the Galloway Gremlins Recorder Group
A dynamic and innovative Early Music ensemble, dedicated to showcasing the infectious charm and dazzling virtuosity of eighteenth-century Scottish music.
Hesperi presents a programme of music from their debut CD “Full of the Highland Humours”, taken from the title of the very first collection of Scots tunes, published in London in 1700. They showcase music by expat Scottish composers who lived or thrived in the capital, including the Earl of Kelly and James Oswald, alongside sparkling trio sonatas by Giuseppe Sammartini and Francesco Geminiani.
_"My overall impression is of the sheer delight and pleasure being communicated to the listener by this exceptionally talented ensemble. I enjoyed every note."_John France, MusicWeb International.
