About this concert
Since its foundation in 2010 by the English cellist and conductor Jonathan Cohen, Arcangelo has surged to international prominence with thrilling performances of everything from Bach and Handel to Gluck and Grétry. The ensemble is guided by a determination to treat works of all periods and sizes with the full attention and intensity demanded by chamber music, an approach that has attracted many fine solo recitalists and chamber musicians to its ranks.
Arcangelo’s concert with Anna Prohaska stood among the highlights of Wigmore Hall’s Early Music and Baroque Series in 2012–13. The group’s latest programme draws on its recent experience of recording Monteverdi to explore music from the composer’s madrigals of ‘love and loss’ and other emotionally charged works created in Venice.
