For a man sometimes accused of “composing the same thing over 600 times”, Vivaldi’s Concerto alla rustica is a remarkably forward-looking work.  “What a loss to the musical world” wrote Mozart about the death of Johann Christian Bach, whilst including a theme of his mentor’s in this concerto. Charles Bodman Rae became the seventh Sir Thomas Elder Professor of Music in 2001 after studying in the UK and Poland.
