The figure of the prodigiously gifted violinist Nicola Matteis, who left his native Italy for London, looms large in this program featuring composers active during Restoration England. He was one of a host of artists and performers from across Europe who flocked there and made a crucial impact on the country’s musical culture. The artistry of violinist Alice Julien-Laferrière, joined by the talented members of the ensemble Ground Floor, reveals this eloquent and sumptuous repertoire which sets the path for the great masters of the 18th century.
