Sun 22 July • John Mills with The Archaeus String Quartet

Dorchester Arts’ favourite John Mills returns with the Archaeus String Quartet to play Vivaldi, Cherubini, Ravel and Argentinian guitar masters.

 John is the only remaining pupil of one of the greatest guitar plays of the 20th century, Segovia, to be performing in public. For many he is “the guitarists’ guitarist”.

 The Archaeus quartet have a 27 year history of appearing at prestige venues such as the Wigmore hall and Purcell Room, and recording  the music of interesting, yet often neglected composers such as Leonard Salzedo,York Bowen, Cyril Scott, and Ethel Smyth.

 If you like the Four Seasons you will love the glorious Vivaldi concerto being played in this concert, and the cheering tunefulness of the Guitar Quintet by Boccherini. And all this comes with the contrasting adventurous elegance of Ravel and the rich rhythms  of the Argentinian guitar masters De Gese, Crespo, and Morel.
