The City Music Foundation and City of London Festival present The Recorder of London with Simon Callow and Miriam Nerval
Recorder player Mirian Nerval is an inaugural artist of the City Music Foundation and will be offering the musical element of this narrated concert which will trace the history of The Old Bailey and its position in British Justice. The main narrator will be the actual Recorder of London, Brain Barker QC, and Simon Callow will put in a guest appearance.
Nerval will trace a musical journey alongside the narrations with continuo accompaniment from Nathaniel Mander, performing repertoire stretching from the early baroque to the 20th century.
Nerval is a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and has given recitals at music festivals including Tel-Aviv, the London Handel Festival, the Dolmetsch Centenary Celebrations, the Brandenburg Festival, Britten100 and the Greenwich Early Music Festival.
The concert will take place at St Sepulchre-without-Newgate and will be followed by a drinks reception under the dome at the Old Bailey.
