Young recorder-player Lucie Horsch joins the Academy of Ancient Music in a programme of concertos and transcriptions, taking in the full emotional gamut of baroque music, from the heartbreaking beauty of Bach’s ‘Erbarme dich’ to the many extrovert moods of Vivaldi’s ‘La notte’ concerto. Harpsichordist Richard Egarr fiis out the picture with two of Bach’s finest keyboard concertos.
