Barokke advent

With thirty-five years of experience, the Flemish baroque ensemble Il Gardellino may by now claim the epithet “historical” for itself. There is however no sign of wear and tear. More numerous and with more gusto than ever, they are kicking off this Advent season with a program that seems tailor-made. Whether it is a jubilant cantata by J.S. Bach, a despairing aria by Handel, table music by Telemann or the most famous oboe concerto of all time, that by Alessandro Marcello, it all sounds as if it was written yesterday. Nay, one could not count down the days till Christmas more pleasantly.
