Nature and Beauty

July 10, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Bernardi Music Group celebrates the nature and beauty at Findon Place and the Church with sublime music and the work of William Morris

Bernardi Music Group and String Academy perform music that reflects the Wilding Corridor emanating from Knepp Castle. We are joining together the Wilding Corridor which links the Sea across the county through the fabulous Country Estates, towns and villages. Findon Valley is an historic corridor where we will be sharing music which reflects and encourages our custodianship of the natural environment.

With nature surrounding Findon and musicians beautifully depicted in the William Morris ceramics beside the altar in the Church, the setting is perfect for the evening’s performance.

Beethoven’s ‘Pastorale Symphony’ was arranged for string players in his lifetime by Michael Gotthard Fischer. The first movement describes ‘the awakening of happy feelings on arriving in the countryside.’ The slow movement describes a ‘scene from the brook’ reminiscent of the River Adur running nearby through the estates such as Knepp Castle. The Scherzo refers to ‘merry making of country folk.’ We experience a storm in the fourth movement and close with a hymn of thanksgiving.

Tchaikovsky’s virtuoso work ‘Souvenir de Florence’ was written with a theme he wrote whilst in Florence. This hugely romantic work in four movements reflects the nature of Findon valley.


Hosted by Findon Place and the Revd Helena Buque with the community of Findon
