We went to two classical concerts with early music leanings at the Roundhouse in the space of three days as part of the Reverb series; we loved both.
This was the first of the two, on the Saturday.
We hadn’t seen Joanna MacGregor before, although we had heard of her. I was aware that she had been a Gresham professor of music.
There was real flare and excitement to this concert; a really interesting blend of early music, south american music and contemporary and jazz themes.
In the moment, I bought a couple of Joanna MacGregor albums on the night:
We’ve listened to these albums a lot and had a lot of enjoyment from them, although they bear little resemblance to the music we heard that night.
Subsequently I bought another one, Play, which reflected at least a couple of the items we heard in the concert.
Anyway, the concert was lovely and left us very excited ahead of the next one, a mere two days away.
