Panettone or Bouche de Noël? Festive ‘sweetmeats’

Baroque In The North presents an exciting multi-instrument programme that includes tracks from their debut album Music for French Kings. Be prepared to fly from Versailles to Rome, with works by Esprit-Philippe and Nicholas Chédeville, Antonio Vivaldi and Arcangelo Corelli. Come along to discover who really composed Domenico Scarlatti’s Op. 4 and enjoy a little Advent spirit with some French Noëls. With works for harpsichord, recorder, violin, cello and musette (18th century French bagpipes!) there will be something for all.
