Formatted Abstract/Summary
This performance used traditional Baroque stings.

The Badinerie Players, professional musicians from the Queensland Symphony Orchestra who specialise playing on period instruments and the Brisbane Chamber Choir, directed by Graeme Morton, join forces once again to present "Baroque to the Modern World."

Fantasias of Purcell begin the concert followed by the splendour of La Pellegrina, excerpts from the lavish spectacle first performed in Florence in 1589 for the marriage of Ferdinando de' Medici Grand Duke of Tuscany to Christine de Lorraine. This was composed primarily by court composers Christofano Malvezzi and Luca Marenzio.

The music of the modern world is performed on modern instruments. Five Hebrew Love Songs by Eric Whitacre, Pater Noster by Peteris Vasks and the glorious sounds of the turn of the century music of Vienna with two songs by A. Zemlinksy, Geheimnis and Frülingsglaube.

Concert recorded for national broadcast by ABC Classic FM. In-concert introduction and commentary prepared and spoken by Michael O’Loghlin. Four intermezzos from La Pellegrina (Florentine wedding festivity, 1589) arranged for this performance by Michael O’Loghlin.
