About the music:

Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos are among his most popular works; this one (No. 3) is highly original in its use of constantly changing combinations of strings.

Marcello’s Oboe Concerto is his best known work and features soloist James Turnbull. Glorious thematics are encased in 3 of the most tightly knit ritornello-form movements ever conceived.

Tchaikovsky said of his Serenade “I wrote from an inward impulse; I felt it”. He was right: a century of audiences have confirmed that it is a masterpiece; the beautifully elegiac third movement in particular.
