Barbaric Beauty

Many of the composers of the Baroque period were fascinated by the music and culture of foreign lands and this programme brings together an extraordinary wealth of styles and influences from France, to Poland – where Telemann paid tribute to the ‘barbaric beauty’ of the music of the gypsy community whose exhilarating playing provided him with “enough ideas for a lifetime of composition” – to Italy, Spain, the Canary Islands and the British Isles!
