12 Dragonetti Waltzes

Hear this 1732 Gagliano bass for the first time in over a century

This is an extraordinary opportunity to hear Dragonetti’s miniature masterpieces performed by Rosie Moon on a 1732, 3-string Gagliano double bass, for the first time in over 100 years. Sounding melodic, vibrant and lively, these pieces take you on an aural world tour. The late, great Rinat Ibragimov recorded on this instrument, receiving 3.5million views on YouTube.

 Saturday 6 July 11:00am • St Clement Church • Old Romney

Please note, there are no public toilets at this medieval venue. This event will finish at approximately 12pm, with no interval.
