Formed in 1988 as a wind ensemble, Il Gardellino takes its name from a flute concerto by Vivaldi with a goldfinch twittering in its title. Co-founders oboist Marcel Ponseele and flautist Jan De Winne have since been joined by string players for repertoire weighted towards J.S. Bach and his contemporaries. The same applies to the concertos they are bringing to BRQ Vantaa: ones for oboe by Giuseppe Antonio Brescianello (c.1690–1758) and Alessandro Marcello (1673–1747), for flute and violin by Giuseppe Tartini (1692–1770), and for flute and oboe by Johann Friedrich Fasch (1688–1758). Taking the leading role are the distinctive sounds of Baroque wind instruments and the dazzling virtuosity of the Italian Baroque.

G.A. Brescianello (c.1690–1758):  Concerto in G minor for oboe and violin

G. Tartini (1692–1770):  Concerto in G minor for traverso

A. Marcello (1673–1747): Concerto in D minor for oboe

G. Tartini:  Concerto in A minor for violin, 'Lunardo Venier' D115
