Bognor Regis Music Club: La Folie Consort

Bognor Regis Music Club is pleased to welcome back La Folie after the Consort’s brilliant concert last year. Under the leadership of Luke Haydn, it prides itself on historically informed performances of Baroque music. Its programme includes Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, Vivaldi’s Cello Concerto in C major (HWV 365), and Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto no.5 in D major.

La Folie was founded in 2016 by Luke Haydn, harpsichordist/organist and composer. It all began in the autumn of 2016, with a successful premiere at St Mary’s Church, East Lavant.

The orchestra consists of members from various backgrounds, and with a good mix of generations, young and old. we view the diverse experiences and knowledge of the members of the Consort as one of our key strengths.

We pride ourselves on looking deeply into the history that surrounds the music we perform, in such a way that creates a historically informed performance, even down to the typefaces of the sheet music. We play from original manuscripts and several editions are deeply perused for each concert to ensure the notes we play are as close to how the composer intended as we can achieve.

We love to hear about new developments in early music and historically-informed development, which allows us to keep our finger on the pulse of what the latest discoveries are in Baroque music, and to bring them to you.

Tickets are £11.
