Launch Of ‘A Little Library Music’ At Exeter Library
Exeter Contemporary Sounds starts a monthly, lunchtime concert series at Exeter Library. A musical window in your week.
A co-production with Libraries Unlimited. Supported by Exeter & District Classical Music Trust and sponsored by Princesshay.
The concerts (the last Wednesday of the month from 1.10 – 1.50pm) will be like a window in the middle of the week, where people can pause, be relaxed, be attentive and have an enjoyable and interesting experience. The concerts are aimed at a general, city-centre weekday audience, particularly people working in central Exeter on their lunch breaks, but also the retired, tourists and shoppers who might come into town for lunch and the concert and of course library users and students of all ages. The Library’s Rougemont Room is purpose-built for music, so it’s a wonderful space for listening to music, with its beautiful wooden panels and large windows overlooking Northernhay Gardens. Musicians love playing there.
Wednesday 25th March 1.10 – 1.50pm Spindle Ensemble : features pianist and multi- instrumentalist Daniel Inzani (celtic harp, accordion), Harriet Riley (tuned percussion) and Jo Silverston (cello) playing original compositions by Daniel Inzani that hover cinematically somewhere between jazz, folk and classical idioms, taking inspiration from artists such as Moondog, Eric Satie and Mulatu Astatke. Spindle is a ‘Live Music Now’ signed group. “Beautiful sounds, definitely a band to watch” Fiona Talkington on BBC Radio 3, Late Junction “This is cinematic music of a high calibre, executed with eloquent musicianship.” 4 Stars – Songlines magazine’
