In the beautiful surroundings of the new Olivier Hall and St-Martin-in-the-Fields, soloists from the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra take you to the cradle of musical civilization – the Italian.
The works by Albinoni and Pachelbel have become justifiably famous, even if the Oboe Concerto by Marcello remains a well-kept secret. Bach admired this regal, yearning and introspective piece enough to transcribe it for organ, before flooding his own Brandenburg Concertos with a distinctly Italian style of bustling musical conversation. Handel’s ceremonial Water Music completes this baroque cornucopia
led by our own outstanding musicians.
