Carnegie Hall Presents

Baroque Unlimited

Historically informed Baroque music has become all the rage all over the world, and this series proves it. As The English Concert and the Italian group Europa Galante salute 18th-century composers from their home countries—Purcell and Vivaldi, respectively—L’Arpeggiata explores musical piety in works from Southern Europe in the 17th century.
