The background

Instrumental fireworks

‘Queen of the Baroque violin’ Rachel Podger will lead and inspire the Bach Society with her violin. Instrumental fireworks sparked off by one of today’s best Baroque violinists.

Queen of the Baroque violin“

What Beethoven was to the symphony, Italian composer and violinist Arcangelo Corelli was to the concerto: a shining example who was known to all composers. In this programme, Rachel Podger shows how far Corelli’s influence extended; way beyond the borders of Italy, to France and Germany. Virtuoso music by composers like Handel and Lully, in which Podger and the instrumental ensemble will shine.
