Sense and Sensibility



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, Haynd and Vivaldi.

Mid 18 Century German music was undergoing rapid stylistic change, with many composers caught up in the ‘empfindsamer Stil’ (sensitive style), aiming for expression of natural feelings in intimate and subjective ways. This program explores elegant pre-classical ‘classical’ music which is both exciting and easy to listen to.

Internationally-acclaimed Accademia Arcadia brings you an unexplored era of music presented with their own unique interpretation.
