A brilliant bouquet of Baroque bests

Transport yourself back to the height of the Baroque era and hear some examples of composition by the finest musicians of the time. What’s more, as these works are presented at the final of the Val-de-Loire Early Music Competition, the musicianship of the performers is of unmatched quality. 

First off, we hear Sonata in G Major “La félicité” by Louis-Nicolas Clérambault, a work for harpsichord, strings and flute. Then, George Frideric Handel’s Trio Sonata in B Minor Op. 2 No. 1 is heard. This is a slow dance, evocative of a dance in a regal court. Next, the violinist and composer Willem de Fesch’s Trio Sonata in G Minor No. 4 Op. 7 is performed. Two works by Arcangelo Corelli are heard next: first the Sonata in G Major Op. 2 No. 12 and then the Sonata in B Minor Op. 2 No. 8. Francois Couperin’s patriotic piece The Nations: France is followed by another work by Handel, the Sonata in G Minor, Op. 2 No. 8, HWV 393. The rare viola da gamba is brought out to perform Georg Philipp Telemann’s Sonata in E Minor, TWV 41: e5 for Viola da Gamba and harpsichord. The concert closes with a final Telemann work, Trio Sonata in D Minor TWV 42:d7. Take an hour to watch the finest performers playing the finest Baroque music.
