Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Paul Dyer

This new release follows the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra’s acclaimed Handel Op.6 Concerti Grossi recording (ABC4763436) which was Editor’s Choice in the Gramophone and Disc of the Month in Classic FM Magazine. Here, ignoring tradition, Paul Dyer takes music from the 16th and 17th centuries and improvises: the orchestra mixing styles, bouncing ideas off each other to create a new sound world.

A tasting plate of gorgeous music! Experience a spicy 17th-century mix from Southern Europe, inspired by songs and dances of love, fire, beauty and freedom. The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra brings earthy improvisations and an adventurous spirit to the Baroque in this beautiful album.
