Baroque composers were quite unscrupulous when it came to borrowing from others. In this programme there are examples of begging, borrowing and stealing, as well as an adaption of ‘Spring’ from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons performed by hurdy-gurdy. The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm 6.45pm Pre-concert talk by Adrian Butterfield
