Eboracum Baroque Burghley Sessions - Watch Online!
Saturday 22nd January 2022 at 7.30pm
In September 2021 our friends at Eboracum Baroque headed over to the beautiful Burghley House in Stamford to film a series of performances for their ‘Burghley Sessions’ concert which will be livestreamed on YouTube and Facebook at 7:30pm on Saturday 22nd January.
The concert was filmed in the Great Hall of Burghley house where it was documented that concerts took place there in the 18th Century. The music featured in this online concert is all taken from the remarkable music collection at Burghley House which was compiled by the Earls of Exeter in the 17th and 18th centuries. The performance features fiery arias by Handel from Semele and Tamerlano as well as a virtuosic Recorder concerto by Vivaldi and a trumpet concerto by the little known English composer, Capel Bond (1730-1790).
As well as this, a couple of the shorter pieces were filmed at St Martin’s Church, Stamford. This church has a strong connection to Burghley House as it is where former Earls and Lords of Burghley are buried including William Cecil, Chief Adviser to Elizabeth I.
Available to watch on Facebook and YouTube. Donations to support the freelance musicians in this performance are gratefully received.
The programme includes:
Recorder Concerto RV 443 – Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741)
Where’er you walk from Semele – George Frederick Handel (1685-1759)
Sonata da camera in G major ‘Ciaccona’, Op 2 No 12 – Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713)
Ciel e terra from Tamerlano – George Frederick Handel (1678-1741)
Trumpet Concerto in D Major – Capel Bond (1730-1790)
Formed in 2012 by Chris Parsons, Eboracum Baroque are a group of young, dynamic freelance musicians who aim to bring baroque music as far and as wide possible, reaching new audiences.
