TAMPA ‘ The Florida Orchestra hosts a throwback party this weekend with a baroque theme. That’s two harpsichords, a smaller ensemble on stage and an effort to play in the style of 17th-century musicians. Things kicked off Friday at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, where conductor Jeannette Sorrell gave the audience a history lesson that wasn’t the least bit dull.

Johann Sebastian Bach got his due, most memorably in the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 and the overture to his Orchestral Suite No. 1, and so did Antonio Vivaldi, with whom this polite, relaxed evening closed on a festive note. In between came Georg Philipp Telemann’s Don Quixote Suite and his Grillen-Symphonie, the first time the orchestra has played either piece.
