Step away from the market bustle of Beverley on a Saturday for a fun-filled programme of games-inspired music, from sports to masks, in anticipation of this afternoon’s card-games performance of Mary’s Hand.

Mozart’s graceful and sunny trio for the warm combination of clarinet, viola and piano is better known as the ‘Kegelstatt’ Trio – named after a skittle alley! Debussy’s Quatre Chansons de Jeunesse take as their starting point a world of commedia dell’arte disguise, a literal and metaphorical mask of sophistication that conceals deeper emotions: the characters such as Pierrot were the inspiration for Venetian masks of the same names, and the songs are full of vibrant and passionate scenes.

Handel and the librettist Brockes shared a love of the good things in life: Brockes’ texts are full of the joy of being alive. And whilst Shostakovich is primarily associated with more brittle music, his Three pieces for two violins and piano are delightfully schmaltzy. He was a great lover of football, whereas Charles Ives was a baseball fan. Sunrise was the last song Ives wrote and is a haunting reflection for baritone, violin and piano.

Latin syncopations meet bold gestures in Milhaud’s effervescent Suite, whose middle movements are fun-filled depictions of games themselves: Divertissement and Jeu.

A frothy, joyous musical start to your weekend!
