The EUBO Mobile Baroque Academy joins in the celebrations of the European Day of Early Music with a webcast of EUBO’s performance with Lars Ulrik Mortensen recorded at the National Centre for Early Music in York, UK on 4 December 2015.

Watch the ever-inspiring EUBO performing music for feasts and banquets by Biber and Telemann featuring the natural trumpet. This recording showcases the highly accomplished playing of the EUBO musicians giving prominence to Venetian fashion in an oboe concerto by Marcello and including one of the most beautiful examples of the passacaglia in Muffat’s fifth Sonata from Armonico Tributo.
