Roger Vignoles will be joining them in a programme ranging from Mozart to Britten. This concert will be recorded by the BBC for transmission on Radio 3 at a later date.

On Sunday early evening Academy of Ancient Music return to the Tetbury Music Festival with an all-Bach programme. Elizabeth Watts (soprano), Pavlo Beznosiuk (violin) and Frank de Bruine (oboe) are the soloists, with director and harpsichordist Richard Egarr.
