Baroque Concert with Spiccato Strings Locatelli, Telemann, Wassenaer, Torelli

img_4214This time round Viola is in the foreground in our concert. We begin with Locatelli’s Concerto a cinque (for 2 violins, 2 violas and cello) with two prominent viola parts. Next is viola’s top baroque concerto by Telemann. Choosing Telemann led us to the concerto for three violins which is a lot of fun. Wassenaer & Torelli round off our concert with a pleasant baroque aftertaste.
