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.
