Take the warmth of Italy. Add the energy of the Baroque, plus the novelty and glamour of the very latest in musical technology: the violin. The renowned Academy of Ancient Music celebrates the Italian concerto, a sunburst of creativity, flamboyance and sheer musical imagination that took Europe by storm – and transformed the way we listen. We’ll meet some old friends: who doesn’t love the showmanship and melody of Vivaldi, or the unchained exuberance of his older contemporary Corelli? Locatelli, Valentini and Mossi are less well-known, but every bit as entertaining. AAM’s leader Bojan Čičić leads his hand-picked team of virtuoso players to rediscover a fabulous lost world: music that never loses its power to seduce, dazzle and delight.

£25, £20, £15, £10
