Marios Papadopoulos director
In the atmospheric thirteenth-century chapel of Merton College, Marios Papadopoulos and the Orchestra present a concert of baroque favourites from Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks and Water Music to Pachelbel's Canon and Vivaldi's intimate concerto for a sacred space, 'Al santo sepolcro'. Nestling in between them is a rare treat: Georg Philipp Telemann's take on Cervantes's Don Quixote, with its depictions of battle, deceit and not one but two galloping horses. Join us for baroque jewels you may know, and some you may not.
