Baroque invention, contrast, and brilliance is on display as Principal Guest Conductor Nicholas Kraemer leads works by four great Baroque composers for groups of four (and more!) musicians. Vivaldi’s propulsive Concerto for 4 violins and orchestra is set against Telemann’s work for 4 violins alone, while Locatelli throws violas into the mix. Two grand concertos for orchestra by Handel merge dramatic fervor with compositional prowess.
