Discover Music of the Baroque Era

The 'Discover' series opens the door to key areas of classical music. Through a combination of illustrative music tracks and a richly filled booklet, the exploration is both revealing and enjoyable.

Includes music by Bach, Handel, Scarlatti, Buxtehude, Pachelbel, Lully, Purcell, Corelli, Vivaldi, Charpentier and many others.
Author: Clive Unger-Hamilton
2 CDs with 140-page booklet:

  • 20,000-word essay
  • Timeline of events in music, history, art & literature
  • illustrated throughout

Grandiose and glamorous, Baroque music stands alone, written to glorify the finest courts of Europe, in Italy, France, Germany, England, Austria and even far-flung Spain. Its greatest composers, such as Vivaldi, Handel and Bach, head a fascinating cast of musical magicians, including Albinoni, Pachelbel and Scarlatti. Their lives are as intriguing as their music: we find virtuoso performers who earned their bread and butter in the cathedrals of Europe while keeping company with kings and queens, and setting opera houses ablaze across the continent with their fabulous new music. Discover Music of the Baroque Era is rich in musical detail of the time, set against some of the greatest events in history and illustrated by two accompanying CDs containing seventy minutes of masterpieces – both favourites and rarities – that give a true flavour of what there is to discover in the glorious Age of Baroque.
