This event has been cancelled and will not proceed as scheduled.

The riches of the Venetian empire weren’t just silk and gold – composers Monteverdi and Gabrieli dazzled with their pioneering Baroque music. Vivaldi’s flamboyant concerti delighted even Bach, while Corelli’s glittering concerti grossi are among the finest of their type. This ‘Italian style’ echoes in French composer Rebel’s audacious Les élémens – a vivid creation story unlike anything you’ve heard before. Conductor Benjamin Bayl, a specialist in this repertoire, is our guide.
