How does a change in surroundings change the way we listen?

The music of the Baroque era is a celebration of virtuosity: flush with ornamentation, laced with ostentation and thick with harmony. For this special promenade event, we'll be joined by acclaimed harpsichordist and passionate Baroque chamber musician Jonathan Cohen (Artistic Director of Arcangelo) to perform a selection of exuberant chamber pieces from the era - at the same time as exploring how our surroundings might change the way we experience them.

Performing the first half of the concert in one venue before moving to a nearby venue for the second half, we'll perform concerti by Corelli, Locatelli and Vivaldi, and violin sonatas by Corelli and Biber, in both a cosier space suited for chamber music, and the more ceremonial, communal space of the church. With two performance times, you can choose the order you experience this music in, either starting in the chamber, or starting in the church. Guided by Cohen’s passion and expertise, we're certain that the verve and flair of this rich period of music will shine through in each and every setting.
