A Baroque chamber ensemble of high originality.
Known simply as Aracadia, the ensemble was formed in 2001 by Jacqueline Ogeil to explore the trio sonata, cantata, early opera and grand liturgical music genres. Their annual performances in Woodend Winter Art Festival have been a popular feature showcasing original Baroque instruments and the works of Scarlatti, Haydn and Vivaldi.
Around the turn of the 18th century, a strange and exotic music was performed in the private Salons of Paris; the Sonatas of Arcangelo Corelli. This program begins with one of the possible Sonatas performed in a Parisian Salon and goes on to explore works from the first wave of French composers influenced by Corelli. Another feature of this program is the Sonata by one of the few 18th-century female composers, Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre.
