Penny Gore presents a concert given by the OAE. Mendelssohn: Cello Sonata No 2, Op 58. Schubert arr. Bohm: Gute Nacht (Winterreise). Weber: Trio in G minor, Op 63.

Penny Gore presents part of a series of concerts in which the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment perform some of Mendelssohn's best-loved chamber music for wind and strings at St George's, Bristol, as part of BBC Radio 3's Mendelssohn anniversary celebrations.

In a programme exploring music for piano, flute and cello, OAE principal flautist Lisa Beznosiuk plays an arrangement of a Schubert song and Weber's Trio in G minor for piano, flute and cello, on a warm-sounding nine-keyed rosewood flute made in 1840.

And co-principal cellist Richard Lester performs Mendelssohn's Cello Sonata No 2 on a Rogeri from 1710, with a bow from 1843 - the same age as the music.
