Concert by the Pratum Integrum orchestra
as part of the December Evenings festival

From the 18th to early 19th century London was an important centre for European music. Since there were few outstanding English composers, foreign composers gladly converged on the city.  This programme presents music by European composers whose destiny was linked in some way with the English capital: Johann Christian Bach, Joseph Haydn and Joseph Wölfl. Also included is theatrical music by the English composer Thomas Linley. His works for violin and theatre promised talent of truly European dimensions, but Linley's genius was cut in the bud when he drowned in a boating accident, aged just 22.

Baroque Grand Christmas Concert

The genre of concerto grosso popular during the Baroque epoch was based on the contraposition of a small group of soloists (concertino) and a full-scale orchestra (ripieno). The concert programme presents concerti grossi by Arcalengo Corelli that were widely acclaimed during the composer's lifetime and also Charles Avison's concerti grossi adapted from the keyboard sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti.

Stylus Phantasticus

Our season will end with music by early Baroque composers, namely Heinrich Franz von Biber and Johann Heinrich Schmelzer – famous in their day as virtuoso violinists. In addition the orchestra will perform the Concerto Grosso in C major by Theodor Schwarzkopf for numerous soloists (two violins, two violas, two viola da gamba, two oboes, bassoon, trumpet) and bass continuo, as well as a sonata by Georg Muffat from the 'Armonico Tributo' ('Harmonious Tribute') collection that combines the features of a sonata, concerto grosso and suite in one remarkable piece.
