 “Oboist Alfredo Bernardini plays with a range of color, wit, and sensuality.” – Audiophile Audition


Italian oboist Alfredo Bernardini is one of the world’s leading baroque directors and instrumentalists. His personality and charm pours from his playing and we are delighted to welcome him back to work with IBO in our Concert Season 2018.

Alfredo presents a programme entitled Born in 1685. 1685 was a mementous year for music with three master composers all born in the same year- Bach, Handel and Scarlatti. The programme charts their musical contirbutions to the baroque period and showcases the virtuosic playing and directing of Alfredo.


D Scarlatti: Sinfonia in C major GF Handel: Concerto grosso HWV 302a, B flat GF Handel: Concerto for oboe HWV 287 in G minor GF Handel: Sonata HWV 399 in G major D Scarlatti: Sinfonia in G major JS Bach: Sinfonia, BWV 156 "Ich steh mit ein Fuss im Grab" JS Bach: Concerto for harpsichord BWV 1054 in D major JS Bach: Concerto for oboe and violin BWV 1060R in c-minor     EVENTBRITE TICKETS ARE VALID AT EACH VENUE.
