Figo Quartet for Music Scholars
Our music scholars and GCSE Music students have benefited from another trip to the Corn Exchange, courtesy of the Newbury Spring Festival* - this time to see 'Figo', a quartet who specialise in Baroque music, using period instruments and techniques to bring to life the music of composers working in London in the early 18th Century. It was a very different experience compared to the jazz performance enjoyed last week, but a very valuable reminder about just how lively, inventive and interactive the music from this era is - it was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
