The first fringe concert of the day had taken place at the former bulwark cum observatory Sonnenborgh. My last fringe concert of the day was also at Sonnenborgh. Ensemble Il Giardino di Delizie were going to perform.
It was not the first time I heard this ensemble. It certainly should not be the last time! I may not be a fan of madrigals à la Windsor Consort. I love catches and glees. So this concert offering “musical views from the Bosco Parrasio” with fugas and follies by Corelli, Scarlatti, Stradella and others, might be just the thing for me.
