A Baroque-tastic exploration of why the masterpieces of the time became so popular and remain so today. Which H composed the Music for the Royal Fireworks? Which B composed the Brandenburg Concertos? Which V composed The Four Seasons? You might already know the answers to these trivia questions, but if you don’t, you almost certainly know the tunes. How did it come to be this way? Why are these tunes still everywhere today – from ringtones to soundtracks? And… are they overrated? Baroquebusters is a fun way to get to know these classics as singer Julia Bullock and the musicians of the OAE guide you through why they love this music. Expect firecracker performances and earworms! Presented from the stage, music to be performed includes ‘Spring’ from The Four Seasons by Vivaldi, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.3, Pachelbel’s Canon, ‘Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’ and Music for the Royal Fireworks by Handel, plus music from operas and songs by Lully, Purcell, Rameau and Strozzi. no, obviously we don’t think they are overrated.
