Southbank Sinfonia Mini Concerts: Set 2 Part of Classical Season 2019/20 An ancient earworm that's over 500 years old is reworked by Vivaldi in his Trio Sonata No.12, La Follia. Could this be the most popular tune of all time? This short concert of chamber music from Southbank Sinfonia continues with the tanginess of Barber's Summer Music, landing us at that glorious hour when day slips into evening with a relaxed, bluesy mood. A fusion of cello and trumpet in Yves Chardon's Sonata has the two instruments engaged in a lively debate which begins to boil over. Mix and match with the two other concerts in the same afternoon to sample something new.
