The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment marks the 300th anniversary of the death of Arcangelo Corelli, with a concert that contains music not just by him but by composers he influenced.

The concert includes Corelli's popular 'Christmas Concerto', as well as Geminiani's maddeningly catchy 'La Follia' variations.

Bringing us up to date, and showing Corelli's influence 300 years on, is a brand new piece by Clare Connors.
