A quartet of acclaimed musicians will be taking a break from performing at Glyndebourne by playing a programme of chamber music at St Nicolas, Pevensey

The progarmme takes place at 6pm on Sunday 12 August.

Neil McLaren (flute) and Catherine Rimer (cello) have both played there on a number of occasions over the past decade, having been attracted by the historic church and its fine acoustic. They will be joined by Jane Gordon (violin) – who performed at St Nicolas with Neil McLaren last summer – and Simone Jandl (viola). The programme will include Mozart’s Duo in G for Violin and Viola, Handel’s Sonata in B minor for Flute and Violin, Bach’s Suite in G for Cello and quartets by Telemann, Janitsch and Quantz.

Neil McLaren is highly regarded for his performances on instruments from the Renaissance to the present day. He is a valued long-standing member of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, as is Catherine Rimer, who enjoys a busy freelance career performing internationally with leading ensembles on both period and modern instruments. Jane Gordon is a highly versatile violinist who performs extensively in Europe, Asia and America. She has a passion for historical performance and is artistic director of the Hastings Early Music Festival. Simone Jandl formed her first string quartet when she exchanged the violin for the viola at the age of nine! As well as being co-principal viola in the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, she is a member of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

Wine and soft drinks will be available during the interval. Tickets are £10 and can be purchased at the door.
