Phoenix Collective presents The Baroque Bizarre. Performed by Phoenix Baroque Trio, comprising Dan Russell (Artistic Director and Violin), Christian Lillicrap (Harpsichord) and guest artist Christopher Bennett (Cello), this concert will highlight the quirky, intoxicating and virtuosic nature of the Baroque: great works by master composers Bach and Vivaldi, and just as impressive works by lesser-known composers Castello, Biber and Schmelzer. This is an eclectic program exploring the realms of tone colour, experimentation and virtuosity.
