One of the great stars of the early music world brings his own orchestra, a hand-picked line-up of leading players from many nations, for a concert which itself reflects the marvellous diversity and cross-fertilisations of European Baroque music. From Lully's dance music for Molière's Le Bourgeois gentilhomme to Biber's riotously inventive Battalia to concertos and suites from Italy, Britain and Spain, it promises a colourful start to our celebration of international harmony.

'Establishes a new gold standard for early music.'
Gramophone
