Wednesday 20 May 2009 at 7.30 pm sees another concert in the St Peter’s Music series at Budleigh Salterton’s St Peter’s Parish Church.
Chris Grist cello
David Wright harpsichord
Cello Suite No 1 in G major BWV 1007 J.S. Bach
Cello Suite No 3 in G major BWV 1009 J.S. Bach
Cello Sonata Opus 1 No 4, HWV 362 Handel
Goldberg Variations BWV 988 J.S. Bach
“An evening of splendid baroque music played by superb artists both of whom have been to St Peter’s before,” say the organisers. “If you know the Goldberg Variations you may be thinking this will be a long programme. Never fear, all the repeats are being omitted! Normally each variation is repeated.”
During 2006 and 2007, much of David’s time has been devoted to The Goldberg Variations, which he has performed extensively though out the UK and abroad. Future live performances include: Bournemouth Festival in May 2007 (tbc), Dartington Summer School in July-August 2007, and Handel House Museum on the 23rd of August 2007. David has recently launched his new recording of the work, which can now be puchased direct by simply emailing David.

St Peter's Music was started in 1994 by the then Vicar, The Revd Robert Gibbs and the Director of Music, Sylvia Pritchard. The intention was to provide regular concerts, mainly, but not exclusively, chamber music, to enable local residents to enjoy serious music without the need to travel to Exeter. Since then the organisation has changed little and the aim not at all. There is some emphasis in the programming to feature young musicians. Exeter School has been included for several years and Wells Cathedral School and the Purcell School have played on a number of occasions.
