RUSH HOUR #6: BAROQUE
Purcell King Arthur Suite
Corelli Concerto grosso Op.6 No.9
Bach Oboe and Violin Concerto in C minor BWV1060
Rameau Suite from Zoroastre
Julian Perkins Harpsichord
Adrian Butterfield Director

Donning gut strings and authentic period bows, our orchestral time-machine transports us back to an era of emotional exuberance, artistic grandeur and rebellious spirits pushing rules to their limits. 

Purcell writes of battles between King Arthur’s Britons and the Saxons, while Corelli’s Concerto grosso provides snapshots of Italian fashion. From France, Rameau showcases the dances of the day, and Bach at his most lyrical pitches two contrasting personalities in conversation.
