French elegance meets Italian passion, with proper German rigour and a dash of Polish folk dance – Baroque Fusions celebrates a blend of Italian, French and German national styles. Featuring Georg Philipp Telemann, one of the most prolific composers of all time and arguably the greatest exponent of the German mixed style alongside JS Bach, and the music of Vivaldi and others that inspired them.

The musicians of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra are world leaders in the performance of music from the Baroque and Classical eras.

Known for their vibrant and dynamic performances, they breathe 21st-century life into centuries-old music, played on period instruments just as the composers intended for their masterpieces. For example, the string instruments for this program use strings made of sheep gut rather than the steel strings you would hear a modern orchestra play on.

This tour is made possible by the support of the Patricia H Reid Endowment Fund.
