Come and explore the mouth-watering temptations of the 'Baroque Buffet', sampling delicious repertoire for permutations of strings and wind, and finding out about 'le bon goût' along the way! This is your chance to explore drama, affect, rhetoric, exuberance, good manners (and possibly bad), passion and name but a few characteristics of this extraordinary period of music and artistic history. Stimulate your musical taste buds through fleeting encounters with strangers or old friends guided by your tutors. This is guaranteed to be fun, challenging and hopefully satiating! There will be some flirtations with the Madrigal course (led by Simon Wallfisch) and an opportunity to put your dancing shoes on and join Ricardo Barros and his troupe, accompanied by those of us who are happier to play, observe and tap our feet to the dance rhythms.
