The Year 1714 (Part II): Stage and Song
A fast-rising ensemble brings us the sounds of London's theatres in 1714, from the 'high art' of Corelli concerti and opera arias by Scarlatti and Bononcini, to the 'low' songs of Henry Carey and Thomas D'Urfey and the newest popular ballads from Scotland and Ireland. Also on the bill are 1714's most popular country dances, 'Englished' arias by Handel, music by Pepusch (from before he found fame with The Beggar's Opera), and Richard Leveridge's music for Macbeth.
'Terrifically animated, wonderful energy ... gorgeous!'
