Cimarosa’s travels: Naples to St. Petersburg , through France , Germany, Poland…and back, in 4 years! His opera buffa, the “Feminine Wiles”, premiered at Naples’s Teatro de Fiorentini in 1794 with a Russian folk ball as its happy ending… Domenico Cimarosa’s musical eyes can still tell us many hidden love stories from all over Europe.

Music from 7.30pm, Food from 7pm at Heath Street Baptist Church, NW3 1 DN

We perform some of Joseph Haydn’s most exhilarating orchestrations and intriguing soundscapes. The lesser known brother may be pedalling away in his brother’s shadow, but to miss him would be tragic. Michael Haydn manages to marry a bizarre mixture of sentiments with a very odd combination of instrumentalists. He is a simply a feast for the curious mind, and our unsung hero.
