Baroque masters AAM turn their talents to the music of Bach and his contemporaries, Albinoni,Vivaldi and Marcello, whose influences Bach absorbed avidly. His Lutheran world was not immune to the sunshine and exuberance of the Italians he regarded as his peers. An evening full of virtuosity, zest and panache. “Transmitting the kick of an energy drink.” Financial Times
