‘Best of Baroque’with Camerata Tinta Barocca

Camerata Tinta Barocca with soloists Erik Dippenaar (harpsichord), Annien Shaw (baroque violin), Bridget Rennie-Salonen (traverso) and Emile de Roubaix (baroque viola) South Africa’s leading baroque orchestra Camerata Tinta Barocca (CTB) presents a programme of popular works from the 18th century which include Bach’s spectacular Fifth Brandenburg Concerto, the well-loved Telemann Viola Concerto and extracts from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Also on the programme are other perennial favourites such as Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba and the Pachelbel Canon. This is a rare opportunity to hear these spectacular works as originally intended. CTB musicians play on exact replicas of 18th century instruments, recreating a sound world of a bygone era.
