In the beautiful surroundings of the new Olivier Hall and St Martin-in-the-Fields, soloiss from the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra take you to the cradle of musical civilization - the Italian baroque. The works by Albinoni and Pachabel have become justifiably famous, even if the Oboe concerto by Marcello remains a well-kept secret. Bach admired this regal, yearning and introspective piece enough to transcribe it for organ, before flooding his own Brandenburg Concertos with a distinctly Italian style of bustling musical conversation. Handel's ceremonial Water Music completes this baroque cornucopia lef by our own outstanding musicians.
