This new release gives us a small impression of what was played for entertainment in the late 17th and early 18th centuries in the houses of London’s high society. The variety of the programme ranges from typical British melancholy to ostinato melodies by Nicola Matteis, an Italian violinist who, like Handel, who is also represented here, enriched the musical life on the Thames as a musical guest worker and Englishman of choice, to the exuberance of the ‘Ayres’. The famous baroque violinist Amandine Beyer and the recorder player Michael Oman are supported by the ABC – Austrian Baroque Company.

Another album of “recreational baroque” which, this time, takes us into the high society of London at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries under the expert guidance of the violinist Amandine Beyer, with Michael Oman on recorder, and the Austrian Baroque Company. The programme consists of a series of pieces composed by virtuoso violinist-composers who were attracted like flies to London’s thriving musical scene (“London Calling”) and whose style was inspired by both Biber and Corelli, at a time when the violin was branching away from the viol and consorts, gradually abandoned in favour of the new instrument, more brilliant and better able to express human and sacred passions.

These music, alternately cheerful and melancholic, was played and danced in noble houses, thus ensuring a substantial source of income for musicians. Discover pieces in this album by Andrea Falconieri, John Hilton and Nicola Matteis, surrounded by Handel and Purcell. © François Hudry
