Carnegie Hall Presents

Baroque Unlimited

New York City’s premiere Baroque music series continues to present the greatest musicians in the field. The development of the Baroque orchestra is explored in a program that features Jordi Savall directing Le Concert des Nations, while concerts by the Academy of Ancient Music performing Bach’s orchestral suites and the Venice Baroque Orchestra in an all-Vivaldi program present the Baroque orchestra at its zenith. The Baroque also gave birth to opera, Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas being one of the most moving examples. Les Violons du Roy perform Purcell’s masterpiece and other works by the English master.
