In March 2019, Harry Bicket, Baroque specialist and artistic director of the English Concert, led Music of the Baroque in a lively musical reenactment of the grand European tour of young nobles and aristocrats, from London and Versailles to Venice and Munich. The program included a concerto by Evaristo Felice Dall’Abaco, who worked in the service of the Bavarian court for most of his life, but his skillfully crafted works were rooted in the Italian Baroque style.
