A journey through 17th-century Venetian chamber music including:

Biagio Marini - Passacaglio in G minor, Ecco a tre violini, Balletto secondo Op. 22
Giovanni Rovetta - Canzon Prima
Giuseppe Scarani - Sonata Concertata Op. 1
Dario Castello - One sonata à Quattro from ‘Sonate concertate in stile moderno’

Paris-based Ensemble Diderot is one of Europe’s most exciting original instrument chamber groups. Its performances and recordings have attracted critical acclaim and the group have held residencies at Aldeburgh, Amilly and the Fondation Royaumon. We are delighted to welcome them back to Brecon Baroque Festival with a programme exploring sonatas by Venetian masters of the 17th Century including Legrenzi, Castello and Marini.

“The clean, lyrical virtuosity from Johannes Pramsohler is of the kind that begs you to simply sit back and soak it all up. Diderot’s one-to-a-part readings on original instruments are truly superb.” (Gramophone)
