Programme to include works by: Biber, Bach, Telemann, Tartini and Matteis
Rachel Podger violin
Abena-Essah Bediako performance poet
Isaiah Hull performance poet
Two of the UK’s outstanding performance poets present brand-new poems they have written specially for this concert, in response to baroque solo violin music played by one of the world’s best-loved violinists.
‘[Isaiah Hull] …creativity consumes him - the way it overflows, in his speech, his gestures, his movements.’ - The Mancunion
Imagine if Vivaldi was a folk-fiddler, Purcell a protest-singer, or Bach a techno-geek ... Baroque at the Edge invites leading musicians from all genres to take the music of the Baroque and see where it leads them.
No rules, no boundaries – just Baroque music set loose.
