“The Baroque period was one of extravagance and daring musical development. There were new instruments, new forms and styles, and new venues. We’ll pick up the story from Monteverdi’s stunning Vespers and trace it through to the genius of Bach.”

Fasten your seat belts, sit back and enjoy this classical music road trip with Dr Jonathan James in this second roadmap talk this Spring.
