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 – at the same time as exploring how our surroundings might change the way we listen.

Performing the first half of the concert in one venue before moving to another for the second half, you’ll experience vivacious concerti by Corelli, Locatelli and Vivaldi, and violin sonatas by Corelli and Biber, in contrasting spaces. Guided by Cohen’s passion and expertise, whether in the cosy ‘chamber’ or the ceremonial church, the common factor will be the verve and flair of this rich period of music.
