Sitting alongside is Italian Baroque composer Locatelli’s Concerto Grosso Op1 in C Minor. Written at roughly the same time as Bach’s Variations, this lesser known piece will form a neat opening to the concert, with its sprightly, dance-like feel introducing the sound of 18th Century Europe. But perhaps the hidden gem of the evening will be young London-based composer Tom Coult’s new work – we know little about the piece (not least the title, which is yet to be released), but we can expect a hypnotic, shimmering sound-world with a visceral rhythmic centre, and an overarching cinematic quality; we’re excited to see how he knits his new piece into the fabric of an otherwise Baroque-based night. It’s a must; get booking - it promises to be a gem.
