The court of Dresden

Monday 26 March 2007 0:00-1:00 (Radio 3)

Instrumental music from the court of Dresden.

'Encourage the arts, Madame, nothing lends more posthumous fame to our lives' Friedrich II of Prussia once advised the Electress of Saxony.

Saxony and its capital Dresden had long been the centre of European culture and many composers wrote for the Dresden orchestra. Catherine Bott presents a programme of music including works by Heinichen, Hasse and the virtuoso violinist Veracini.
