Australian Soprano Celeste Lazarenko and flautist Melissa Farrow both feature as soloists. The program weaves together a stunning selection of late Italian baroque works for soprano, flute and strings by Hasse and Vivaldi.

Hasse’s beautiful motet Alte Nubes Illustrata will be interwoven with movements from his B minor flute concerto and contrasted with Vivaldi’s virtuosic Sum in medio tempestatum and his La Notte concerto for flute.

Sum in medio tempestatum is a virtuosic work for soprano complimented by dramatic writing for strings and continuo. The Hasse Motet Alte Nubes Illustrata provides a beautiful contrast with this – although equally virtuosic, it captures a stunning lightness and beauty of the voice and silvery tone of the flute.

True gems of the baroque!
