Paul Reade is one of those composers whose music everyone knows but can rarely put a name to! His music for the children’s television series, Ludwig and Crystal Tipps and Alistair, the theme tune to Antiques Roadshow and his incidental music to A Victorian Kitchen Garden (to be heard in the Festival Gala Concert) are just a few well-known examples.


Marking the release of ‘A Celebration of Paul Reade’ on Signum Classics, this concert presents some of Paul’s finest music including A Victorian Kitchen Garden Suite for flute and piano, Catalonia for bassoon and piano, and a new chamber arrangement of the ballet Hobson’s Choice, performed by the extraordinary musicians Philippa Davies, Laurence Perkins and Jan Willem Nelleke. A perfect Saturday afternoon!
