A Night in London

Ophélie Gaillard
Pulcinella Orchestra

Charles Avison
Francesco Geminiani
Georg Friedrich Händel
Giovanni Battista Cirri
James Oswald
Johann Adolph Hasse
Nicola Porpora

In the 1730s, many composers tried their luck in London, where many other treasures were in preparation: Geminiani revolutionised instrumental writing with his famous treatise on interpretation and presented an amazing version of La Folia; his pupil Avison orchestrated concertos by Scarlatti, and Porpora ventured away from opera to rediscover the vocality of the cello with one of the most beautiful concertos of that period. Ophélie Gaillard and Pulcinella treat us to a frenzied and poetic night in London. They meet Geminiani, Hasse, Scottish composer James Oswald and virtuoso cellist Giovanni Battista Cirri. Guest artists Sandrine Piau and Lucile Richardot take on magnificent vocal pieces by Geminiani and Handel – Faustina Bordoni and Francesca Cuzzoni would have been seriously envious, that’s for sure!
