Brandenburg Concertos concert/broadcast

By Nicola Cleary

description

To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Brandenburg Concertos, all six concertos will be performed and recorded in one day as part of the 26th Sligo Festival of Baroque Music. 

I’m Nicola, violinist and artistic director of the Sligo Festival of Baroque Music. This is my first Fund:it  project, bringing this amazing score to life. The size and scope of this production is a humongous undertaking and is a strictly non profit event. 

The highly acclaimed London Handel Players and Irish baroque specialists will take to the stage in this unique collaboration under unique circumstances. The project will be led by the London Handel Players, a world class ensemble and leading period-instrument specialists. Together we have organised the full line up of musicians and various soloists to perform these complete works in Sligo on Saturday, September 25th, 2021. The sound engineers and film crew are ready to engage.

The big ask is for your support to help with the fees for the various instrumental solo performers, and for the recording and filming of the concerts. This live performance recording we will then share with you.

19 musicians are needed for this performance: 3 violins,3 violas, 3 cellos, 2 viola da gamba, double bass, harpsichord, 3 oboes, bassoon, flute, recorder, 2 natural horns and a trumpet!

While the Festival receives support from the Arts Council and other funders, we need your help to deliver this ambitious one-off event by raising €6500 for the musicians' fees and recording/filming.

 

 

 

 

Life’s journey has taught me to recognise the power of passionate ideas. The immense impact their success leaves on everybody who believes in, works on, and persevered with is far-reaching and transformative. This performance is a unique collaboration between performers, festival committee, organiser's, audience and broadcast listeners.

For Sligo, for Ireland, for music and for the whole world, join us in realising a unique dream, a triumph of hope and community. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you if you choose to support our project. We hope you can either join us on Sat 25th September or enjoy the recording which we send  to you with our greatest thanks.
