Dance of the Violins – Vivaldi & Telemann
The nature in the palace garden has awakened with the spring- intoxicating scents and dancing butterflies delight our hearts. Inspired by this graceful play of nature, the Berlin Residence Ensemble cordially invites you to a concert in the Great Orangery, in which the virtuoso played violin parts almost come to life & dance around each other almost pictorially.
Wonderful examples of this are Antonio Vivaldi's concertos for strings & basso continuo. Enjoy the concerto in g RV 156 & on the concerto in g RV 157 with its spirited finale.
Although Georg Philipp Telemann frankly admitted that "concerti did not come easily to him", his Concerto in A major TWV 43: A4 is a brilliant piece in the Italian style - inspired by French suite music. Here, too, there is a constant duet of the two violins and a very lively dialogue between the strings - crowned by a gallant solo of the first violin.
The Berlin Residence Ensemble, conducted by Alexandra Rossmann, will play a pleasurable concert for you that reflects the sensual spring dances of nature in the glamorous ambience of the Great Orangery.
