During the baroque period the compositional technique of antiphony (musical conversations between parts) was highly popular, particularly in chamber music. Inspired by this practice, the NCEM’s youth-music ensemble for school-age musicians offers a showcase of changing approaches to musical dialogue in 17th-century Italian chamber music. Alongside works by Castello, Frescobaldi, Gabrielli and Bononcini, the Minstrels will also perform compositions and improvisations exploring musical conversations of their own.

The Minster Minstrels is run in partnership with York Music Centre with support from Mayfield Valley Arts Trust. For details of how to join this lively young group, visit ncem.co.uk/minsterminstrels

With thanks to Harrowells for their generous support.
