A Concerto Spectacular abounds with all manner of colorful works written in the concerto style, every one a perfect vehicle for the virtuoso soloists of AKAMUS. Up to the present Bach’s concerts surprise with its harmonic and contrapuntal refinement, while Handel’s and Vivaldi’s works are brimming with inventiveness and sensuous sounds. This joyful program is a true compendium of Baroque concerto techniques. Trumpet, oboe, cello and violin play jubilant tunes and arise deep feelings in their respective solo concertos. A concert of concerts – a feast of the emotional worlds of the Baroque, with the extraordinary musicality of some of the greatest masters of the era.
