From 1702, the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane staged vibrant and glittering entertainments of music, dance, and acrobatics during the intervals of spoken plays. Recorder player Olwen Foulkes – accompanied by theorbo and cello - introduces the music and musicians featured in these fashionable interval concerts. The programme includes fiery sonatas by Arcangelo Corelli and Giuseppe Sammartini, and beautiful suites by less well-known musicians James Paisible, Matthew Locke, and John Grano.
