European Union Baroque Orchestra
ALISON CROOSE King's Lynn Festival event at St Margaret's Church, King's Lynn
Twenty young musicians from across Europe gave a gem of a concert delighting an audience that included their patron, the Duke of Kent.
Eubo's newly-appointed music director, Lars Ukrik Mortensen, looks set to enhance the orchestra's reputation as expert expon-ents of baroque music, providing the “experience gap” that launches young musicians into careers with top orchestras.
The orchestra displayed total cohesion in playing a succession of works that make baroque music so enjoyable and cheerfully accessible.

Zelenka's Hipocondrie opened the programme, and immediately the musicians impressed with their flair and energy, which continued through Handel's Opus 6 Concerto Grosso and Telemann's Overture in B flat.
Muffat's Sonata from Armonico Tributo concludes with a long passacaglia – but to ensure the evening ended with the spirited animation for which they will be remembered, they played the allegro from the Handel concerto as an encore.
