Musical immigrants flocked to Baroque London, joining native musicians to make the English capital one of the greatest and most diverse cultural centers in Europe. Martin Davids (violin) and David Yearsley (organ) present a panoramic view of the city’s riches, including works by the indigenous genius, Henry Purcell; the great expatriate German, George Frideric Handel; his friend, the Italo-Iberian keyboard player of glittering virtuosity, Domenico Scarlatti; and the mercurial Italian violinist, Francesco Maria Veracini. Their music, originally conceived for a variety of instruments and voices, is here creatively adapted and transformed into sparkling settings of renewed intensity.
