Musical journey through time - Corelli & Avison
The Berlin Residence Ensemble cordially invites you to a musical journey that follows the traces of music- historical connections from Italian Baroque to English pre-classic.
The Italian composer Arcangelo Corelli is considered to be one of the main founders of the musical genre concerto grosso. Very famous are his twelve virtuosic Concerti grossi Opus 6, which he wrote in the palace of the papal vice-chancellor Ottoboni.
Look forward to No. 4 from this impressive musical piece.
Francesco Geminiani, who traveled from Italy to London in 1714 and had a musical influence there, was in close contact with Corelli.
His concerto grosso “La folia” will be played virtuosic and touching by the chamber ensemble, which will be conducted by Alexandra Rossmann.
The Englishman Charles Avison, on the other hand, was a student of Geminiani in London - his elegant Concerto grosso No.19 in D major Op.4-7 shows the change in musical styles in Europe in an impressive way.
Experience an exciting concert in the footsteps of music history from Italian baroque to English pre-classic!
