While we were very sad to have to postpone our programme for this summer, Clun Valley Music is delighted to present our new series of online performances. Over the summer months, directors Luba and Richard will be performing J S Bach's six suites for unaccompanied cello. These performances will be accessible on this page, and will be uploaded weekly starting from 27th July.
We would like to thank Sue Dowell for the use of her beautiful barn for these recordings, and also Yann Besson, the wonderful luthier whose viola and cello you shall hear throughout this series.
Luba & Richard introduce the series:
J.S. Bach - Suite No.1 BWV 1007
J.S. Bach - Suite No.2 BWV 1008
***We sadly have had to postpone both of the events below, due to government guidelines. We very much hope to be able to bring them to the people of Clun before too long. Please check this page for updates.***
