The Diverging Baroque Traditions.

Watch here, or on YouTube or Facebook

ConcentusEighteenth-century Europe was a melting pot of diverging musical traditions. Marin Marais and Jacques-Martin Hotteterre’s music showcase essences of the French tradition; Giuseppe Sammartini represents the late Baroque Italian style; and German composers Telemann and Handel’s cosmopolitan style blends various European traditions together.

Alex Yu and Ka-Wai Yu have grown up playing together in a musical family. They are joined by harpsichord virtuoso and historical keyboard specialist, Elena Zamolodchikova, with whom they have a shared passion to reach out to the community through early music and period instruments. The three are active music educators, clinicians and sought-after artists, travelling internationally to bring a witty, fresh approach of Baroque music.
