The Russian classical music culture developed greatly in the Romantic era but of course its origins predate the 19th century: under the renowned Catharine the Great (1729-1796) St Petersburg became a dazzling mecca of music. This concert by the flamboyant Russian baroque ensemble Pratum Integrum is proof of that.
