Christmas concert: Holywell Music Room, Oxford

  • Holywell Music Room Oxford UK (map)

Vibrant young quartet Improviso presents a joyful Christmas programme, representing a variety of composed and improvised music from three centuries and four countries. Opening with excerpts from Charpentier’s sparkling instrumental narrative of the nativity, you will hear kaleidoscopic chamber music of the Italian 17th century, an arrangement of one of J.S. Bach’s most arresting organ trio sonatas, and improvisations over festive songs from 16th century England and Spain.

‘‘A baroque feast from Improviso…they’re so good they have halos’ BBC Radio 3
