Event details

Katrina Faulds and Penelope Cave (University of Southampton) present an entertaining programme of domestic music and readings, reflecting political and social issues from the end of the eighteenth century up to the aftermath of Wellington's victory at Waterloo in 1815

Music, as played in the English country house, will be performed on a historic pianoforte, on loan from Southampton University, including battles, dances, duets and operatic transcriptions by popular composers of the time. Penelope Cave is an international prize-winning harpsichordist. Her solo CD, From Lisbon to Madrid, received 5 stars from the BBC Music Magazine. Since completing her PhD at the University of Southampton on piano lessons in the English Country House around 1800, she has been invited to implement suitable music at Dyrham Park for the National Trust. Katrina Faulds has completed postgraduate studies on the fortepiano and clavichord. In 2012, she undertook a scholarship at the Attingham Trust Summer School to promote the study of the English country house and its collections. She is currently completing her PhD at the University of Southampton on social dance and dance music at Tatton Park.
