The Argument of the Trees is a pastoral allegorical tale of conflict and resolution. It takes the form a ‘masque’ alternating the music of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, performed live by members of the European Union Baroque Orchestra, with scenes performed by puppets illustrating the narrative of the Vivaldi’s sonnets.
GOfBaroque enjoyed complementarity with the cross-artform festival Antwerp Baroque 2018. Rubens inspires. At the invitation of the city of Antwerp EUBO performed at the opening concert of this prestigious festival on May 31 in the Queen Elizabeth Hall.
From 10 until 14 August 2018, internationally renowned baroque musicians shared their knowhow through individual lessons, workshops, orchestra rehearsals and more, with young musicians from all over Europe who were selected to participate in the GOfBaroque Summer Academy.
Central to the GOfBaroque project was the formation of a baroque orchestra [EUBO] comprised of highly talented young instrumentalists from all over the EU. Two experienced baroque musicians with international allure will directed the EUBO-orchestra with two different programs.
