Baroque Fusions French Elegance, Italian Passion and German rigour.
French elegance meets Italian passion, with proper German rigour and a dash of Polish folk dance – Baroque Fusions celebrates a blend of Italian, French, German and Polish national styles. Featuring Georg Philipp Telemann, one of the most prolific composers of all time and arguably the greatest exponent of the German mixed style alongside JS Bach, and the music of Vivaldi and others that inspired them.
