...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Baroque curiosities, composers to be discovered, great heroes, pithy movements, arias, concertos and, of course, Baroque gestures – half a dozen musical rarities will be performed at the BFO’s pre-Christmas concert of early music. The ensemble and the violin concerto will be led by the versatile virtuoso Sergey Malov. Opera and cantata parts will be performed by Rowan Pierce. The BBC Music Magazine reviewer described the young soprano’s voice as clear, strong, supple, sparkling and warm. Sigrid T’Hooft, one of the most renowned experts on baroque movements, is once again responsible for this unmissable spectacle. The program includes a forgotten member of the Scarlatti family, the opera composer Hasse, the prolific Telemann, the violin virtuoso Pisendel, and Handel, who was already world famous during his lifetime.
