Sligo Baroque Orchestra present the opening concert of the 27th Sligo Baroque Festival. A programme in two parts featuring an animated performance of Les élémens by Jean-Féry Rebel. This work is a stand-alone short ballet beginning with an ear-tingling musical representation of chaos.
This will be followed by Maria Viksnina, who offers audiences an opportunity to hear a torban played for the first time ever in Ireland as a solo and continuo classical instrument. She will join with Sligo Baroque Orchestra in a performance of a concerto grosso by Heinichen.
