Description

Presented by the Barsanti Ensemble and the University of Edinburgh Musical Instrument Collection, this concert highlights a manuscript collection of music in Edinburgh University Library that was collected by Charles Hope-Weir during his grand tour of Europe in the 1750s. The music, by lesser-known Italian composers, features baroque stringed instruments and natural horns. Performed on period instruments in St Cecilia’s Georgian Concert Room, this concert will transport you back to the 18th century with music and instruments of the time.
