The Medley Concerto by Richard Mudge, an eighteenth-century English clergyman and composer, belongs within the tradition of Handel and Geminiani. Scored for a concerto grosso string ensemble plus two horns in D, it successfully combines dance variation form with baroque concerto structure. This good-humoured, sometimes riotous, piece, would make the perfect conclusion to a concert.

A new, octet version of Ming Wang’s original Schwebende Fragmente for alto flute, viola and cello (HH214.fsp), but now with even greater colour and depth. Fragments of dreams, memories and illusions arising in the borderland between life and death emerge abruptly out of the subconscious and disappear just as quickly as they came.
The eight of Bitti’s twelve ‘Cambridge’ sonatas, representing the composer’s late, galant style. A suave preludio is followed by an allemanda, a sarabanda and a giga, and the mood of the whole is both relaxed and genial.
