Event description

Description

Local musicians Annabel Knight and Robin Bigwood bring their baroque ensemble, Passacaglia, to Cirencester in a special CD launch and preview concert, ahead of their performance in the Greenwich International Early Music Festival in November.

Antonio Vivaldi, as popular in the baroque period as now, was unashamedly imitated, borrowed-from and re-arranged by composers across Europe. In this invigorating and colourful programme, we explore Vivaldi’s music as it masquerades in various different guises, with music from the Four Seasons, French-styled sonatas imitating the Red Priest, JS Bach's transcriptions in homage to Vivaldi, and Passacaglia's own take on the famously wild 'La Folia' Variations.

Annabel Knight - Recorders, flute
Louise Bradbury - Recorders
Oliver Webber - Violin
Robin Bigwood - Harpsichord
Reiko Ichise - Viola da Gamba
Taro Takeuchi - Baroque Guitar
