We capture the spirit of the Grand Tour with La Serenissima. It led to a boom in music export with which copyists could barely keep up.  Well-known works such as the jubilant double oboe concerto of Albinoni and the jaunty Concerto Alla Rustica of Vivaldi rubs houlders with lesser-known pieces such as the Corelli and Caldara sinfonias, the latter of which – to our knowledge –has never been performed in modern times.

Pre-concert talk ‘Blowing the doorsoff the Italian baroque’ with Adrian Chandler at 6.30pm. Free to all ticketholders.
