and the Lockdown Passacaglia!
Throughout the year of lockdown, members of the University Baroque Ensemble have continued to rehearse both online and, more recently, in person. This remarkable achievement culminates in this gorgeous programme which focuses on music from the French courts with a smattering of English music and the brilliance of Vivaldi's writing for a quartet of violins. The concert ends with a Lockdown Passacaglia, devised by the student musicians.
This concert was recorded in the National Centre for Early Music on 25 June 2021.
Ticket holders will be able to watch this concert on demand for one week after the initial broadcast.
