We end our season with another atmospheric evening by candlelight.  A dynamic and exciting selection of the very best violin and theorbo music played by two of the world’s top early music performers.

Dutch-Italian Cecilia Bernardini is widely considered to be one of the most versatile violinists of her generation, obtaining prizes in several major violin competitions.  As a soloist, she has performed in in many of Europe’s prestigious concert halls.

Working in the UK, Europe, and North America as a soloist and chamber musician, Matthew Wadsworth has appeared at most major concert halls and fesivals, and can often be heard on radio, both in live performance and recordings.
