Gloriette

composer

 
Gloriette is the name of the building in which this cello and piano piece was first performed at Leeds Castle in August 2008. There can be few more beautiful buildings in the country. Dating from the thirteenth century, it was home to many of the Medieval Queens of England and was transformed into a royal palace by Henry VIII for Catherine of Aragon. The nostalgic opening melody is the prelude to moments of turbulence and drama as well as passages of real tenderness.
