One of the country’s leading baroque orchestras present a feast of instrumental colour with oboes, bassoons, trumpets, timpani, strings and continuo by the finest composers of the period.
The musical world of eighteenth-century Europe was a small one. Despite the problems presented by contemporary standards of transport, it was normal for composers in one part of Europe to be au fait with what was happening elsewhere. This is borne out by the closeness of three German composers: Telemann, godfather to CPE Bach; Pisendel; and JS Bach, who admired both his compatriots and composed some astoundingly difficult music for the violinist Pisendel.
