Baroque concertos by Vivaldi, Corello, Handel and Telemann.

Harpsichordist Rinaldo Alessandrini formed early music ensemble Concerto Italiano in 1984, becoming renowned for its performances of Italian Baroque composers. In the second of two concerts at this year's Festival, the ensemble plays an array of Baroque concertos in the Italian style by Vivaldi, Corelli and Brescianello, and pieces absorbing Italian influences written in England and Germany by Handel and Telemann.
