Lufthansa Festival Of Baroque Music 2013: Carolyn Sampson, Freiburg Baroque Orchestra
"Baroque on the High Seas.
The Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, one of the world's finest period ensembles and old friends of the Festival, are joined by the UK's favourite Baroque soprano in a bracing encounter with the 18th-century ocean in all its facets, from opera arias by Handel and Vivaldi comparing the vicissitudes of love to the ups and downs of the rolling seas, to a typically witty celebration by Telemann of the Hamburg Port Authority. Bring waterproofs!
'An unmitigated joy.'
