The composers in the Chamber Music in the Bush concert would have been very happy to know that three centuries later, their music is still popular.
Baroque favourites such as Vivaldi, Handel, Telemann and Bach feature in the next concert at Salon Concerts at Broadford.
This is the third concert of the 2017 series, and Peter Hagen performs with Jane Downer from the UK in a CD launch concert celebrating both old and new repertoire for their duo.
Ms Downer performs on baroque oboe, which under her fingers produces sounds ranging from hauntingly delicate to lively and happy.
Together with Mr Hagen on the harpsichord, they will perform on October 15 at 4 pm in a program guaranteed to delight any aficionado of baroque music — music composed about 1600 to 1750.
