4th Korkyra Baroque Festival opened!

The 4th Korkyra Baroque Festival was opened yesterday with the great performance of a Croatian Baroque Ensemble and Vocal ensemble Antiphonus under the artistic direction of a remarkable English virtuoso, violinist Catherine Mackintosh. Once again familiar sounds of baroque masters Händel and Purcell enlivened beautiful walls of St. Mark’s Cathedral and captivated the festival’s audience with a unique musical fantasy, a mixture of Italian and English baroque styles, under a symbolic name  Royal Birthday. A traditional prelude to this magnificent concert night was a performance of Baroque Moreska by Croatian Artistic Society Moreška, accompanied by Croatian Baroque Ensemble and conductor Ivan Josip Skender.
