Tafelmusik’s extraordinary musicians step into the spotlight

In this dynamic showcase of Tafelmusik’s artistry, Rachel Podger and members of the orchestra flex their musical muscles as soloists in a bouquet of concertos that highlight the violin, cello, recorder, oboe, and bassoon.

This program features peerless examples of baroque concertos, including Bach’s Concerto for violin and oboe in C Minor, Telemann’s Concerto for 3 violins in F Major, and Corelli’s Concerto grosso no. 1 in D Major.  Tafelmusik’s vibrant colors combine in Vivaldi‘s vivacious Chamber Concerto in G Minor and two of his blockbuster concertos shine the spotlight on the bassoon and cello.

With this panoply of dazzling concertos we celebrate the inspiring musicians of Tafelmusik joining talents with Rachel, acclaimed for concertos “crackling with vitality and executed with consistent brilliance” (Gramophone).

Rachel Podger

Principal guest director & violin soloist

“Rachel Podger, the unsurpassed British glory of the baroque violin,” (The Times) has established herself as a leading interpreter of baroque and classical music. Fresh from being announced as the winner of two 2023 BBC Music Magazine Awards for Instrumental Recording and Recording of the Year, as 23/24 Artist in Focus for Kings Place, and with two new albums released this month, Principal Guest Director Rachel Podger was the first woman to be awarded the prestigious Royal Academy of Music/Kohn Foundation Bach Prize in October 2015, Gramophone Artist of the Year 2018, and the Ambassador for REMA’s Early Music Day 2020. A creative programmer, she is the founder and Artistic Director of Brecon Baroque Festival and her ensemble Brecon Baroque.

Following an exciting and innovative collaboration, A Guardian Angel, with the vocal ensemble VOCES8, Rachel was thrilled to be one of the Artists in Residence at the renowned Wigmore Hall in 2019/2020. Alongside this, Rachel and Christopher Glynn released the world premiere of three previously unfinished Mozart sonatas as completed by Timothy Jones (2021). Their second disc together of three Beethoven Sonatas was released in March 2022. Recent recordings include a disc of solo repertoire along with a recording of C.P.E. Bach sonatas with fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout.
