Details

With this year’s theme for the Barnes MusicFestival being Music & Place, one of the most
notable places in Barnes is the London Wetland Centre and we are delighted to be presenting
the first ever classical music concert to take place there. A Musical Aviary performed by
Davina Clarke (violin), Oliver-John Ruthven (harpsichord) and accompanying cellist features music inspired by birdsong through the ages, including works by Biber and Handel (who lived at nearby Barn Elms when he first came to London in 1712). This will be accompanied by audio-visual of the birds and their songs related to each piece of music
