A weekend of genre-bending events inspired by Baroque music - Baroque at the Edge returns on-line

Baroque at the Edge - No Walls
This weekend the Baroque at the Edge festival is planning to give us another blast of its genre-bending Baroque music inspired events. Running on-line from 7 to 10 January 2021, the festival will be featuring a mixture of concerts recorded at LSO St Lukes and live Zoom events.

So there will be Bach on the Moog synthesizer, guitarist and lutenist Sean Shibe mixing 17th century dance tunes with music by Ravel and Poulenc, recorder player Eliza Haskins joining forces with percussionist Toril Azzalini-Machecler, violinist Rachel Podger on the use of classical rhetoric in Baroque music, performance poets Abena-Essah Bediako and Isaiah Hull presenting poems in response to Baroque music, Nicholas Mulroy on the musical affinities between the giants of 1960s Latin-American song-writing and the composers of 17th-century Europe, and for the finale Lucy Crowe, Tom Moore and La Nuova Musica explore the role folk song and dance has played in European art music.

Full details from the Baroque at the Edge website.
