Emanuel Ensemble presents

“Music for George and Charlotte”

Eileen Joyce Studio, University of Western Australia

Royal watchers will be familiar with George and Charlotte, the charming children of “Wills” and Kate. However, this concert focuses on their ancestors and namesakes, nine generations and three centuries earlier: King George III of England (1738-1820) and his wife Queen Charlotte (1744-1818), formerly Princess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.

George and Charlotte were passionate music lovers: George played the flute and adored Handel, while Charlotte played the piano and preferred the latest modern Classical music: many up-and-coming composers dedicated their works to her. This concert presents works by Handel, Mozart, Pleyel, Haydn, and a newly rediscovered trio by Christopher Papendiek who was Page to the Royal Family.

Artists:

Emily Gunson - flute
Sophie Curtis - cello
Lisa Rowntree - piano
John Hardy - harpsichord

Tickets $37, concession and seniors $32.

Admission includes a programme and afternoon tea at interval. Seating is limited, so booking is recommended.
