There will be no interval

In the first of a pair of Proms Saturday Matinees dedicated to early music, Belgian Baroque ensemble B'Rock makes its Proms debut with a programme of 18th century Italian music.

Orchestral pieces and solo motets by Vivaldi sit alongside music by Caldara – a famous castrato showpiece – and Geminiani, whose variations on the famous 'La folia' theme rival Scarlatti's, Lully's and Corelli's for rhythmic urgency and virtuosity.
