‘New Horizons’ – Locke to Locatelli
Daring dissonances, compelling rhetoric and angst-ridden affects… What makes Baroque music eternally new and life-affirming? Here, the synthesis of musical styles in Muffat’s Armonico tributo contrasts strongly with depictions of warfare and wild dancing. The exquisite Bach A min Violin Concerto contrasts with Locatelli’s temperamental ‘Song without Words’. Comprising some of the finest period instrumentalists of our time, Sounds Baroque is heard regularly on Radio 3, has appeared at major London venues and at international festivals.
