Three outstanding performers of baroque music present works by two of the most highly-regarded composers of the High Baroque. Telemann and Bach were in close contact throughout their careers; Telemann was godfather to JS Bach’s most famous and gifted son – CPE Bach. Both were incredibly prolific and this programme shows a variety of styles including Italian, French and German which combined influences from outside to create distinctive compositional and performance styles.
Rachel Podger is one of the most creative talents to emerge in the field of period performance. Over the last two decades she has established herself as a leading interpreter of the music of the Baroque and Classical periods and holds numerous recordings to her name. In addition to her solo and chamber career, she is leader of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and founder and director of Brecon Baroque.
Recently described on BBC Radio 3 as the Queen of the Recorder Pamela Thorby is unique amongst British recorder players in the breadth and variety of her work, having been involved in an amazing number of diverse recordings and concert projects to date. Her musicianship has led her to be in demand as soloist, chamber musician, session player, orchestral principal and teacher.
Peter Seymour is director of Yorkshire Baroque Soloists, Yorkshire Bach Choir and Corona Coloniensis and has worked and recorded in most European countries. He is also an artistic adviser to York Early Music Festival and Professor in Music and Organist at the University of York.
