All baroque music presents emotion, here that of very expressive laments by two great song writers of the mid-17th century alongside Monteverdi’s famous solo from L’Orfeo. Scarlatti’s arias for trumpet and soprano present sounds of war, songs of honour, whispering breezes, consolation and comfort – not always emotions associated with the trumpet but magnificently and vividly set by Scarlatti.

This Baroque Day of three concerts focusses on the use of music to tell stories and to express emotions - a popular concept in the 17th and 18th centuries, although the term ‘programme music’ was not in use for another century. The music includes famous examples of musical storytelling by Telemann and Biber and also contrasts Laments written for instruments alone with those for accompanied voice.

Please note there is a £1.50 administration charge per transaction
