Their unique flair, dynamic playing, and exciting and challenging exploration of period music really make our musicians modern baroque stars. They sweep onto the stage with a vibrant energy, instantly engaging the audience with an intimacy as if they were in the salon in a great house of the 18th century.
A wonderful opportunity to hear stunning baroque concertos and rare combinations of instruments.
Modern and edgy in their time, Telemann, Vivaldi, Sammartini and Fasch produced the most sensational instrumental music. Paul has chosen these pieces of baroque brilliance with soloist spotlights for each of the players, ending in a blaze of festive baroque trumpets and drums.
This concert is a celebration of everything the Brandenburg – one of the world’s finest period instrument orchestras – does so well.
