French Dances, Frogs and Windmills – Baroque Connections               

Many of you will be familiar with the TV programme ‘Only Connect’. Well, here we have an evening of music which all connects in some way. It centres around Corelli’s joyful Op. 6 no. 2 which is the inspiration for this year’s winning composition from the Losh-Atkinson Historic Sounds Composition competition.

Handel also wrote an Op.6 for strings, so we will include his Op.6 no.2 as well… you get the idea.

Some of the connections will be obvious, some more tenuous, but included in the programme are Telemann’s Frog concerto and his Don Quixote suite, Rebel’s Characters of the dance and a harpsichord concerto by the rarely played José António Carlos de Seixas.
