Academy of Ancient Music leader Bojan Cicic takes us on a return trip to baroque Italy, in this celebration of the Italian concerto in all its wildly entertaining forms – from Vivaldi’s Venice to the splendour of Rome.

Take the warmth of Italy. Add the energy of the baroque, plus the novelty and glamour of the very latest in musical technology: the violin. Today we celebrate the Italian concerto, a sunburst of creativity, flamboyance and sheer musical imagination that took Europe by storm – and transformed the way we listen.

Tonight, we’ll meet some old friends: who doesn’t love the showmanship and melody of Vivaldi’s L’Estro Armonico, or the unchained exuberance of a Corelli Concerto Grosso? Locatelli, Valentini and Mossi are less well known, but every bit as entertaining. Academy of Ancient Music's leader Bojan Cicic leads a hand-picked team of virtuoso players to rediscover a fabulous lost world: music that never loses its power to seduce, dazzle and delight.
