Live from the Wigmore Hall

The English Concert teams up with Ian Bostridge in an exquisite programme of Italian cantatas, sinfonias and concertos. Alessandro Scarlatti and Antonio Vivaldi provide the real Italian components, while the works of two Germans, Handel and Venturini, show how ubiquitous the Italian style had become in the early years of the 18th century.
