In the beautiful surroundings of the new Olivier Hall and St-Martin-in-the-Fields, soloists from the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra take you to the cradle of musical civilization – the Italian baroque. The works by Albinoni and Pachelbel have become justifiably famous, even if the Oboe Concerto by Marcello remains a well-kept secret. Bach admired this regal, yearning and introspective piece enough to transcribe it for organ, before flooding his own Brandenburg Concertos with distinctly Italian style of bustling musical conversation. Handel’s ceremonial Wster Music completes this baroque cornucopia led by our own outstanding musicians.

Address: Olivier Hall, St Edward’s School
