Gloria! Vivaldi’s setting is one of music’s most uplifting choral works full of high drama and memorable tunes. Come and experience this dazzling piece alongside spectacular concerti featuring chalumeaux, theorbos, mandolins and tromba marina (a member of the violin family).
Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev continues the Baroque theme with Corelli’s B-flat Concerto, beautifully crafted with an exquisite violin solo, while emotion is at the heart of Zelenka’s Miserere. This concert promises edge-of-your-seat stuff from the first downbeat.
