The glittering festivities of European royal palaces and ducal courts and their solemn liturgical ceremonies gave the music of the Baroque era pride of place. From opulent writing for the stage through virtuosic instrumental concertos to moving sacred music – the fertile ground of Baroque culture brought forth countless musical masterworks which centuries later have lost none of their charm.
