Fri 20 October 2017

West Road Concert Hall

Musical migration and cross fertilisation was at a peak in the eighteenth century. Arriving in England (Giuseppe Sammartini made London his home) the Italian concerto grosso was soon adopted by London's fashionable musical circles. Whether penned by Italians (Sammartini, Corelli, Geminiani), or composed by Englishmen after the Italian style (Handel, Avison), the combative character and exciting virtuosity of the concerto grosso had a profound impact on the music-making and composition of the baroque and early classical age. The works in this programme explore the development of the concerto grosso across the continent and illustrate the pervasive influence of Italian music in England.
