Lythe Chamber Music Course 2015

Lythe Chamber Music will run its second summer course from 26-30 July 2015.

This year, we are expanding the remit to include recorders, and delving back into baroque repertoire alongside the focus on classical keyboards and winds that proved so popular last time.

Joining the tutor team alongside Jane Booth and John Irving is James Brookmyre P1000537who will be coaching recorders. James is particularly keen on early 17th-century repertoire, and will be happy to explore works from Castello through to Corelli, Bach, Handel, Telemann and beyond.

and enjoying the magnificent scenery of the North Yorkshire coastline at Lythe, there will be visits to two local craft gallery spaces in Sandsend and East Barnby for our concerts in intimate domestic settings. Then there’s the spiritual magic of St Oswald’s church – a fabulous venue for music-making.

In addition to John and keyboard students on the course, we are fortunate in 2015 to have a very experienced official course accompanist, Dr Peter Bullett, formerly of St Paul’s School.
