The Brook Street Band make a welcome return to this year’s Festival with an Italian influenced programme.
Seventeenth and eighteenth century Italy was the essential destination for large numbers of people, ranging
from aristocratic European gentlemen, to artists, musicians and composers. The huge draw was of course its
incomparable cultural and intellectual heritage. The Italian Connection explores this rich legacy through
compositions by Bach, Handel, Telemann, Vivaldi and Leclair.
