Loki Music  

Loki Music’s series of early music concerts

Garrick's Temple, Garrick's Lawn, Hampton Court Road

The early music season at Garrick’s Temple in Hampton will start with a celebration of Shakespeare’s birthday on Friday 21 April.

The concerts will continue with quartets of various kinds, including Telemann’s ‘Paris’ quartets [for flute, violin, harpsichord and bass viol] on Friday 19 May, performed by Follia.

Quartets will also play a part in at least two of the three Shakespeare Symposia at Garrick’s Temple, linking music to philosophers: the French Revolution and Hegel on Saturday 1 April; from around 1848 [Marx] on 24 June, and the late 19th century [Nietzsche] on 2 September. Booking and details of these symposia - and other events at Garrick’s Temple - can be seen via the www.garrickstemple.org.uk website.

William Summers has included some of his other work in the website concert calendar including orchestral concerts in Colchester and Hadleigh, Bacchanalian revelry with minstrels Princes in the Tower in St Albans, and one lonely performance of music from Jane Austen’s notebooks in Enfield on 21 May - with a hope to repeat this in Garrick’s Temple.
