The Year 1714 (Part I): Theatre and Concert Room
Crack Polish orchestra Arte dei Suonatori have won widespread critical acclaim for their performances of Vivaldi with star violinist Rachel Podger. Here they perform a specially devised programme of orchestral and instrumental works by five leading European composers, including concertos by Vivaldi and Corelli published in 1714, music from Handel's first London opera (revived that same year), and a 'sequel' to Corelli's Op.6 ingeniously fashioned in London by his pupil Geminiani. Read about 'The Year 1714 (Part II)'.
