Glories of the Baroque by candlelight

7 October 2023 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Glories of the Baroque

Handel Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
Vivaldi Trio Sonata in D minor ‘La Follia’
Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 in F major, BWV 1046
Handel Water Music

Our 2023-24 season kicks off in style with a programme of Baroque favourites performed by the Bristol Ensemble including the effervescent fanfare Arrival of the Queen of Sheba and Vivaldi’s spirited set of variations La Follia (The Madness). At the heart of this concert are Handel’s majestic Water Music and Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.1 – his ‘job application par excellence’ written for the Margrave of Brandenburg. The first is the grandest and richest of all six concertos, with the most solo instruments and movements.

Pre-concert talk with Steve Clarke begins at 6.45pm. Doors open at 6.15pm for the talk and at 7.15pm for the concert only.
