The Baroque Concerto took various forms, from concerted works to those that pit a soloist or group of soloists against an orchestral ripieno group. Here we celebrate some of the masters of Baroque Concerto forms, from Vivaldi to Bach and Handel.
This is the last of three concerts in the Baroque Day which this year explores the instrumental forms that became popular during the period, paving the way for future instrumental genres, and confirming the ability of instruments alone to move the passions of listeners, even without the addition of the human voice.
