This delightful evening begins with an opportunity to explore the wonderful gardens at Lamport. Doors open at 6pm allowing time for you to order from the champagne bar or pre-order an optional delectable picnic hamper to be consumed in the gardens before the concert begins. So why not indulge? At 7:30pm the spectacular music in the Carriage House begins; the perfect end to a delightful summer evening.

One of Spain’s musical treasures, José María Gallardo del Rey has been playing in public since the age of nine! Inspired by his native Catalonia, he is equally at home with classical and flamenco.

The British period instrument orchestra FIORI MUSICALI are one of the main providers of classical and early music concerts outside London. Founded by director Dr Penelope Rapson, Fiori have earned a reputation for bringing first class music to thousands of music lovers annually across the region and showcasing some of today’s finest professional baroque specialists. Fiori appear in many formats – as a chamber ensemble, as a choir and as a nationally recognised orchestra – always capturing something of how the music first sounded, in concerts from the late renaissance to the early romantic and beyond.

Fiori have a number of acclaimed CDs, including first performances in modern times of music hidden away in archives for centuries. Their new Tallis CD was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on Boxing Day and received high praise from Jeremy Summerly on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review.

We are also delighted to host a solo recital with José María Gallardo del Rey on Sunday 20th June. Click here for more information.
