The LCS launches its 2017-18 season with a thrilling selection of baroque masterpieces by the three towering figures of the period.
The concert begins with one of Handel’s Concerto grossi – majestic orchestral showpieces in the Italian style – followed by Bach’s exultant cantata, requiring dazzling virtuosity from the soprano and trumpet soloists.
It concludes with Vivaldi’s Gloria – a work which contrasts vibrant passages for full chorus and orchestra with expressive and intimate solos, and which remains a popular cornerstone of the baroque repertoire.
