Baroque music at its most flamboyant, alongside later sounds inspired by it – and the ideal opportunity for Maxim Emelyanychev to raise the roof with his exuberant passions as both conductor and harpsichord soloist.
Telemann introduces us to a forerunner of the clarinet in his soulful Concerto, while Bach and Corelli’s own concertos are shot through with propulsive energy and sparkling interplay.
Nearer our own times, Respighi makes Baroque lute tunes glitter all the more brightly in his kaleidoscopic orchestral reimaginings, while Glass and Vaughan Williams steer us towards moving contemplation in their powerful, spiritual pieces.
