Unitarian Church

Welsh-based composer, conductor and impresario Charlie Barber brings his team of musicians to High Street’s Unitarian Church for a unique late-night, hour-long continuous mixtape of Baroque and contemporary classics. Commissioned by Tŷ Cerdd, and part concert, part imaginary late-night radio broadcast, Radio Amore fuses new work from Barber with music by Vivaldi, Pergolesi, Purcell, Handel and Michael Nyman. Inspired by the mixes in contemporary DJ sets and experimental broadcasting, and evocative of the sizzle and crackle that accompanied new musical discoveries on a Bakelite tuning dial, this concert will be a sensual journey through centuries of musical imagination.
