Founded in 1984, Concerto Italiano has earned the reputation as one of the finest ensembles to specialize in Baroque music. On this week’s edition of Baroque&Before, we’re treated to a select chamber group from Concerto Italiano, joined by soprano Sonia Tedla and bass Gabriele Lombardi, in works by Handel, three works by Handel’s older contemporary Alessandro Scarlatti plus another, formerly attributed to Handel, by the Neapolitan Francesco Mancini.
Tonight’s program was recorded live in concert March 5, 2023 in London’s Wigmore Hall. Thanks to WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, we’re able to bring you tonight’s program as a stream for thirty days following the broadcast.
