Beautiful hymns open and close this striking concert, beginning with a collection of Bach chorale arrangements that explore orchestral colour, and ending with Beethoven’s profoundly healing Heiliger Dankgesang from his String Quartet in A minor Op. 132. Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser and Bénédicte Lauzière lead the KWS through Stravinksy’s playful suite based on the commedia dell’arte, and Vivaldi’s virtuosic and dramatic La Follia.
