About this event

A concert celebrating 200 years since the death of the astronomer William Herschel. Among his many vital contributions to astronomy was his discovery of Uranus. But he was also an oboist and composer of dozens of symphonies and concertos.

As part of the concert we are delighted to welcome Dr Matthew Spring, Research Fellow at Bath Spa University, to give a short, illustrated talk about the relationship of music and astronomy in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The programme will include Herschel’s Symphonie No 8 and his Oboe Concerto in Eb, together with works by Handel, JS Bach, Lully, and Lawes. Joining the orchestra will be Geoff Coates, internationally recognised as one of the world’s finest baroque oboe players.
