Programmes - Non-choreographed - "Bass Desires!"

Daisy Vatalaro baroque cello
Helen Rogers harpsichord
Lynda Sayce theorbo and mandolin

More than 150 years of Italian cello music, from just a lowly bass line to the magnificence of Vivaldi and elegance of classical Boccherini. The tantalising combinations of theorbo, harpsichord and cello contrast with light-hearted
and schmaltzy mandolin sonatas and the famous Mozart
keyboard variations on an exceedingly well known nursery rhyme.
