Celebrated horn player Ben Goldscheider joins Brother Tree Sound for an evening of Nineteenth-Century classics and a world premiere on Saturday 15th June 2024 at the Church of St Giles, Holme, Peterborough

The renowned string quartet Brother Tree Sound, featuring Anna de Bruin, Thea Spiers, Peter Mallinson, and Julia Graham, is set to deliver a memorable performance joined by the internationally celebrated horn player Ben Goldscheider.

The concert will showcase a selection of nineteenth-century classics alongside the highly anticipated world premiere of Peter Fribbins’s new quintet, ‘The Fens’.

The concert is the second in a new series of events as part of the non-profit initiative Fenlandia, which aims to promote the cultural heritage of the Fenland region.

Peter Fribbins, a distinguished British composer, draws deeply from his personal and familial ties to the villages around Peterborough, particularly Holme.

His grandfather was born in the village in 1911, and his great-grandmother was part of the choir on the historic ‘floating church’ in the 1890s.

Additionally, his three times great-grandfather was the publican of the Admiral Wells in the 1860s. Fribbins’s quintet ‘The Fens’ poignantly reflects this rich history through its movements, capturing the medieval grandeur of Peterborough Cathedral, the transformative power of the Great Northern Railway through the fenland, and the enduring legacy of St Withburga’s, the floating church.

The concert programme includes:

Ludwig van Beethoven: String Quartet in F minor Op.95 ‘Serioso’

Peter Fribbins: ‘The Fens’ for horn and strings (World Premiere)

Alexander Glazunov: Idyll and Serenade for horn and strings Op.11

Felix Mendelssohn: String Quartet in A minor Op.13

The concert will last approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, including a 20-minute interval, providing a perfect evening of musical immersion.

Tickets are available now and can be purchased at https://fenlandia.org/events
