Passacaglia Baroque Ensemble- Vivaldi Undercover
Passacaglia is a UK-based professional ensemble specialising in music from the baroque era, played on Baroque recorders, flutes, violin, viola da gamba, guitar, cello and harpsichord. With over 25 years of performing and recording experience, Passacaglia brings the music of the baroque era to life with a range of exciting, colourful and engaging programmes.
Vivaldi, as popular in the baroque period as now, was unashamedly imitated, borrowed-from and re-arranged by composers across Europe. In this invigorating and colourful programme, suitable for all kinds of audiences, Passacaglia explores Vivaldi’s music as it masquerades in various different guises… with quirky re-workings of the Four Seasons and other concerti by Nicolas Chedeville and JS Bach, an exploration of Vivaldi’s mysterious ‘opus 13’ and Passacaglia’s own boisterous interpretation of Vivaldi’s ‘La Follia’ Variations.
