Arcangelo’s all-new chamber programme explores one of Baroque music’s greatest enigmas: to what extent does the received score convey all of the composer’s intentions and ideas for performance? “The Art of Improvisation” playfully refrains from direct answers whilst offering a thrilling European tour of Baroque music in which free creativity is alternately released and captured: folk transcriptions, themes and variations, ornamentation, full improvisation – and contemporary completion.

Programme:

Corelli – Sonata Op.5/1 in D major
Telemann – “Methodical” sonata No.2 in A major
Barsanti – Four Scottish Folk Tunes
Bertali – Ciaccona in C major
Corelli – Sonata Op.5/10 in G major
Erlebach – Trio Sonata in A major
Mealli – Sonata Op.3/2 “La Cesta”
Schenck – Adagio assai and aria presto from Sonata No.5
Biber – Passacaglia
Corelli – Sonata Op.12/5 in D minor “La Folia”

Teodoro Bau, viola da gamba
Sergio Bucheli, theorbo
Colin Scobie, violin
Jonathan Cohen, continuo and direction
