Buskers’ Baroque (or Handel with Care)

As committed proponents of original instruments, The Classic Buskers have developed a new Baroque programme which has already been enthusiastically received at the Dublin and Göttingen Handel festivals and the Bath Bach festival.  Bach features prominently, with arrangements of concertos Brandenburg and otherwise, movements from his orchestral suites and cantatas and a remarkable semi-staged version of Sheep May Safely Graze.  Handel is represented by the Water and Fireworks Music, an organ concerto or two and of course, The Messiah. Seasons and other concertos from Vivaldi, a real Adagio by Albinoni, pieces by Purcell, Rameau and the Bach clan combine to form something very rare – a genuinely funny Baroque concert.
