National Baroque

Duration:
20 minutes
First broadcast:
Sunday 03 March 2013

Like many English country houses, The Vyne in Hampshire is a building upon which both successive owners and the wider march of history have left their mark. Originally a large Tudor establishment constructed on medieval foundations, in the 1650s it gained a classical portico inspired by Inigo Jones - the first such at any English country house - and a century later played an important role in the Gothic Revival. And the house is still full of the artefacts and mementos which John Chute, its then owner, brought back from his Grand Tour of Italy in the 1740s. During the interval of this afternoon's concert, in National Baroque, Katie Derham, in conversation with Lars Tharp, finds traces of the Baroque in this charming house and explores its fascinating history.
