The music of the Baroque era is a celebration of virtuosity: flush with ornamentation, laced with ostentation and thick with harmony. For this special concert, our musicians and acclaimed harpsichordist Jonathan Cohen (Arcangelo) will perform a selection of exuberant chamber pieces. You’ll experience vivacious concerti by Corelli, Locatelli and Vivaldi, and violin sonatas by Corelli and Biber, guided by Cohen’s passion and expertise.

Jonathan Cohen is an acclaimed cellist, harpsichordist and guest director, and founder and Artistic Director of Arcangelo, the celebrated London-based early music ensemble known for their performance and recordings of Baroque and Classical repertoire. Cohen is also Artistic Director of Tetbury Music Festival, Artistic Partner of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra (Minnesota, US), Music Director Designate of Les Violons du Roy (Canada), and Associate Conductor of Les Arts Florissants.
