Change of Programme and Running Order:
The programme and running order for this concert has changed and will now be as listed below:


  • Tabea Debus recorder
  • Alex McCartney theorbo
  • Jonathan Rees cello

Until the 15th century, music was predominantly an aural tradition. However, with the invention of the printing press this tradition began to disappear. Still, some melodies are innately memorable – why? Described by Classic FM as ‘challenging perceptions of the instrument’, Tabea Debus is constantly exploring the horizons of music for recorder and has performed widely in Europe, Asia and the USA.
