A few days ago, I went to the Auckland town hall to see L’Apeggiata as part of the Auckland Arts Festival 2017. L’Apeggiata is a Baroque chamber group, with lots of improvisation and melding of Baroque music with other periods and styles, most commonly Jazz.
It was quite an exciting night. I recognised perhaps 60% of the pieces they performed (Baroque is the period of music I listen to most frequently) though I found it difficult to come to terms with the modernisation as I am more of a traditionalist when it comes to music. I adored the Cornetto and wished to hear more of the violin! It really was a concert to entertain.
