What we offer
AB24 offers attractive, easily accessible programmes of Baroque music, typically mixing less well-known repertoire from England and Scotland with works by the great German and Italian composers such as Bach and Vivaldi. AB24 are also keen exponents of French baroque music, an interest that has led Amanda to become one of only a handful of players of the Musette, delicate eighteenth-century French bagpipes favoured by Louis IV.
Programmes offered by AB24 blend trio sonatas (for two recorders, recorder and violin or recorder and musette) with solo sonatas for recorder, violin, musette or cello (with harpsichord) and include works for solo violin, cello, recorders or harpsichord.
Since its inception, AB24 have given concerts for music societies across Scotland. Their combined educational experience leads to a natural enthusiasm for educational work and they are delighted when they can combine workshops in schools with a nearby concert!
