Poster to follow
Devon Baroque and the new century happened at almost the same moment: its first concert, under the direction of its founder, Margaret Faultless, being held on 7th January 2000 in the Foxhole Theatre, Dartington. An uncountable number of concerts later we celebrate the band’s twentieth anniversary by repeating the Handel, the Bach and the Vivaldi, adding to these music for multiple violins by Telemann and Giuseppe Valentini. The colourful Valentini will prove to be a revelation to those who have not yet heard it.
