Wigmore Hall: The A-Z of Italian Baroque

25th June 2025 | 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

Save the date!

This concert forms part of ‘The A-Z of Italian Baroque’

The composers of the Italian baroque whose music graces today’s concert programmes are relatively few and far between; Albinoni, Corelli and Vivaldi form the staple diet, with the occasional work by Scarlatti or Torelli thrown in for good measure.

In the 18th Century, things were quite different.

Many other composers were needed to fulfil the needs of the regional courts and churches. Even abroad, no court was complete without its resident Italian maestro or group of Italian string players, a situation that encouraged many Italian musicians to pursue careers north of the Alps.

Whilst some of the usual suspects are included in this series, La Serenissima, celebrating its 30th anniversary this season, features many composers whose music is seldom played today.
