About the event

The concerts held every year in Leighton’s studio were like a who’s who of midnineteenth century music making. There was a real sense of the creative arts reaching across to each other – all in the informal and intimate atmosphere of the studio, with Leighton’s work in progress all around them.

Following his successful recreation of one of Leighton’s “Musics” last summer, musician and broadcaster Sandy Burnett returns to host another concert at Leighton House. There will be a look at how music was enjoyed in the salons of Paris and elsewhere in continental Europe. Music from more recent times will also be presented.

The programme includes the E minor violin sonata by Mozart and the A major sonata by Brahms; songs by Schubert, Gounod and Britten; and some of Chopin’s best-loved piano music. Richard Edgar-Wilson steps into Lord Leighton’s shoes as the tenor for the evening, with the violinist Kathryn Parry and Juliet Edwards at the piano.
