"The works presented on this album are those that have inspired and surrounded us for these past ten years. Mozart's divertimenti – little gems that nonetheless contain all the facets of human emotions and more – are a source of rejuvenation for the listener and a marvellous space for experimentation and playing, in the proper sense of the term, for the musicians.

The "B-Side" of the album dives into another world, with three original arrangements written for Camerata Alma Viva by Eric Mouret. From the finesse of Kabalevsky's Waltz to the bohemian virtuosity of Monti's Czardas and the famous "Baroque 'n Roll" of Handel's Passacaglia, Eric displays all the ingenuity of his writing in these works specially arranged for the musicians of the group." (Charlotte Maclet, founder)

The Sunday Concerts trace their history back to 1878 when the People's Concert Society was formed for the purpose of "increasing the popularity of good music by means of affordable concerts". The South Place Ethical Society acquired the concert series and, in 1929, had Conway Hall purpose built for them and, with the exception of the war years, the concerts seasons have continued ever since.

This event is in the Main Hall on the ground floor. For accessibility info:
