Artistic Partner Richard Egarr brings both dramatic flair and tenderness to works from the Baroque era. Johann Heinrich Schmelzer and Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber were pioneers of the violin and their groundbreaking music uses new techniques to depict the sounds of battle, rowdy soldiers singing at a pub and the song of a nightwatchman. Johann Sebastian Bach’s beloved Orchestral Suite No. 3 is filled with flashy brass fanfares and vigorous dances, and includes “Air on the G String,” one of his most famous melodies.
