Lucie Skeaping presents a concert recorded at the Bath International Music Festival, featuring the two winning entries of the Radio 3/National Centre for Early Music Composers' Award performed by the group Florilegium.
The theme of this year's competition was "dance music" and young composers aged 25 and under were invited to compose a short dance inspired piece especially for period instruments, and especially for the members of Florilegium. The instruments they could choice from were baroque flute and recorders; baroque violin or viola d'amore; baroque cello or piccolo cello; harsichord or organ.
The competition prompted a large response and in today's programme listeners are offered a chance to hear the two winning entries from two different age categories, as performed by Florilegium as part of the Bath Festival.
The programme also features dance music by Leclair and Rebel, performed at the festival by Florilegium.
