Final presentation concert from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music Baroque Winter Academy. This presentation is the culmination of an innovative pedagogical project where the musicians took part in masterclasses and workshops designed to explore rhetorical gesture, emotion and affect in baroque music.

Lectures on affect and on the baroque court of Kroměříž were also included, as well as improvisation sessions. The concept behind this approach is that music-making needs to be developed in a holistic way, involving body, mind and emotion. Motion, emotion, movement and moving an audience are concepts that were familiar to the 17th century musician.
