Tuesday - Sarah Walker

With Sarah Walker. This week we've chosen at a handful of recordings from one of the pioneers of period instrument performance, the harpsichordist and conductor Trevor Pinnock. In 1973 he founded The English Concert, an ensemble devoted to baroque music performed on original instruments, and it is perhaps this incredibly successful association for which Pinnock is best known. This week we are featuring some of his most well loved recordings with the English Concert including concertos by Vivaldi and Corelli, Symphonies by Mozart and Haydn, choral works by Purcell and operatic excerpts from Gluck and Handel. In addition we are also featuring a number of Pinnock's solo keyboard recordings, including works by Soler and Domenico Scarlatti.
