Versatile Baroque

In the programme Versatile Baroque, music and short explanations give a lively illustration of what music-making was like in the eighteenth century. Baroque musicians were craftsmen; as apprentices imitating their masters, their skills and knowledge grew while working. Frequently they were sent abroad, to be informed about the latest fashions and trends at foreign courts. Instrumentalists were commonly skilful players of several different instruments, moreover, they were not merely performers but always composers aswell! The musicians of the Dutch ArtWorks ensemble will show their versatility in this programme.
