(Baroque)

 

Program iLove baroque: Short Stories and Voices of Eternity creates a lively atmosphere designed to engage the audience in an unusual way.
Five musicians, eight short anecdotes, nine roses, two centuries of wonderful music from five countries by composers like J.S. Bach, A. Vivaldi, H. Purcell and others; all these make for a program full of drama, tenderness, joy, humour and melancholy (5 musicians : 2 flutes, cello, guitar and percussion).
