From the latest London Festival of Baroque Music (LFBM) newsletter:
"... For a start, we’re very pleased to announce that we’ve again been able to lengthen the Festival by a further two days, so that it is now back to the same 9-day format as the old Lufthansa Festival. ... Secondly, we thought you would like to know something about our new Festival theme, which has been inspired by the 450th anniversary of the birth of Monteverdi on the one hand, and the 250th anniversary of the death of Telemann on the other.
