Paul Dyer would like to introduce Australian audiences to four electrifying young artists who have glanced around the corner and are seeking to define Baroque performance of the future. Two violinists and two singers. All four exceptional and gifted and all four sweeping the globe, captivating audiences with their passion for music.

At just 10 years of age, violin prodigy Christian Li recently won the 2018 Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition in Geneva, and Annie Gard, Madison Nonoa and Filipe Manu are similarly making momentous musical waves across London, New York and Europe. These next generation artists will ignite the Brandenburg stage as they perform a program of instrumental and vocal music by Bach, Handel, Arne, Vivaldi – all the Baroque greats – alongside the Brandenburg Orchestra.

With spirited virtuosity, boundless youthful energy, brilliance and maturity, this concert will celebrate our next generation.
