In the second concert marking the 250th anniversary of Telemann’s death, we welcome Nicola Benedetti who joins Richard Egarr and AAM for the first time. Performing this programme with gut strings – which she has described as having a more ‘human’ sound than that offered by their modern counterparts – Nicola brings to life music including Telemann’s Frogs concerto (where the violns and violas imitate a chorus of croaking amphibians), and Vivaldi’s sizzling Il Grosso Mogul where solo and orchestral parts mesh together in a feast of virtuosity. Opening the concert, soloists from AAM join Nicola in Telemann’s Concerto for Four Violins.
Programme to include:
Telemann Concerto for Four Violins in C major
Vivaldi Concerto for Violin in D major ‘Il Grosso Mogul’
Vivaldi ‘Dresden’ Concerto for Violin in F major
Telemann Concerto for Violin in A major ‘The Frogs’
