In the 1730s, many composers tried their luck in London. Francesco Geminiani revolutionized instrumental writing with his famous treatise on interpretation and presented an amazing version of La Folia. His pupil Charles Avison orchestrated concertos by Domenico Scarlatti, and Nicola Porpora ventured away from opera to rediscover the vocalism of the cello with one of the most beautiful concertos of that period. Cellist Ophélie Gaillard and the Pulcinella Orchestra treat us to a frenzied and poetic night in London. Guest artists Sandrine Piau and Lucile Richardot take on magnificent vocal pieces by Geminiani and Handel.
