Rarely are they awarded a first prize at the international Musica Antiqua competition in Bruges, but in August 2015 the jury really had to change: the then 23-year-old harpsichordist Justin Taylor played the stars of heaven. The public gave him the Audience Award.
Since then, Taylor has been making waves. Together with his companions from Le Consort, he focuses on Corelli's trio sonatas. "The Orpheus of our time," Corelli was called alive. The interest in his magnificent trio sonatas was so great that they had to be reprinted several times.
No trio sonata without Corelli: the Italian baroque hero was a crucial link in the development of the genre, which offers a wide palette of textures and colors with two melody instruments and basso continuo.
This concert is part of the Early Music series.
