A rousing, smile-inducing concert of wit and theatricality courtesy of Scottish violin superstar Nicola Benedetti and the Academy of Ancient Music, one of the world’s most revered period performance ensembles, under charismatic Music Director Richard Egarr.

As admired for her brilliant Baroque playing as she is in more recent concertos, Benedetti delivers the wit and gypsy abandon of Vivaldi’s ‘Il grosso mogul’ Concerto, alongside his sumptuous F major ‘Dresden’ Concerto and the amusing musical croakings of Telemann’s A major Concerto.

Egarr directs Telemann’s musical depiction of Alster Lake near Hamburg – complete with cannon fire, echoes, birds, animals and merry-making peasants – and is soloist in Vivaldi’s energetic A major Harpsichord Concerto.
