Over two decades, Florilegium has built a reputation as one of Britain’s outstanding period-instrument ensembles. Known for stylish and exciting interpretations, they have performed across the world and with many of the finest musicians.
Who better to guide us through this fascinating collection of Baroque musical riches? The French repertoire mixes sizzling Gallic virtuosity with elegant Italianate dance forms. In eight short but exhilarating minutes, Rebel gives us a whistle-stop tour of fourteen contemporary styles of dance!
The programme is completed by three members of music's greatest family,the Bachs - JC, CPE and Telemann (CPE's godfather). The many sections of JS Bach's inventive Musical Offering are all based on a single melody dictated by Frederick the Great.
