Early Music @ 1 - Tuesday 12th May

We're delighted to welcome cellist Carina Drury and harpist Aileen Henry to Early Music @ 1! The first piece they perform is "Ye Clarge's Lamentation" from the first printed collection of Irish music, Neal's 'Celebrated Irish Tunes' from 1724. The second piece is a movement from Geminiani's Cello Sonata No.3 which Carina plays as a duet with herself. Both of these pieces have been recorded for Carina's first album which was funded by the Arts Council of England and which will be released later this year!
If you're feeling inspired, have a look at our collection of sheet music for cello or browse our collection of instruments!
Carina studied at the Royal Academy of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Philip Sheppard, Jonathan Manson and Richard Lester. She now works with the UK and Ireland’s leading period instrument and chamber ensembles such as the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, La Serenissima, Irish Baroque Orchestra, Camerata Ireland and the City of London Sinfonia.
Her playing can be heard on CDs such as Olwen Foulkes’ ‘Directed by Handel"’ album with Barn Cottage Records! Find out about upcoming performances and projects on her website or follow her on Twitter!
Aileen studied at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with Gabriella Dall’Olio and Frances Kelly, followed by a postgraduate degree at the same institution during which she was a TL scholar. While an undergraduate at Trinity Aileen was introduced to the baroque harp and, falling for the beauty of the instrument and its music decided to pursue it alongside the modern harp. ​
Since finishing her studies, the baroque harp has taken Aileen all over the UK, Ireland and Europe, playing beautiful music with some exciting young baroque ensembles!
