From the Roundhouse in Camden, Lauren Laverne and Andrew McGregor present Part 2 of a concert in which the BBC CO performs music based on and also reworking the Baroque.
As part of Radio 3's Baroque Spring, The BBC Concert Orchestra and conductor Charles Hazlewood offer a different Baroque experience in their 'Baroque Re-Mixed' concert from London's iconic venue in Camden, the Roundhouse. Will Gregory (Goldfrapp) and Matthew Herbert (Radiophonic Workshop) are writing new works based on a baroque foundation, and the concert also features two new reworkings of Purcell's Rondeau from Abdelazer, re-imagined in a contemporary idiom for the BBC CO by two young composers selected especially for inclusion in this concert. Swedish singer Ane Brun joins with her own Purcell adaptation and the concert ends with Stravinsky's neo-classical masterpiece Pulcinella.
Presented by Lauren Laverne and Andrew McGregor.
