The Berlin Residence Ensemble cordially invites you to a musical journey that traces the music-historical connections from the Italian Baroque to the English pre-classical period.
The Italian composer Arcangelo Corelli is considered to be a significant co-founder of the musical genre concerto grosso. His twelve virtuoso Concerti grossi Opus 6, which he wrote in the palace of the papal vice-chancellor Ottoboni, are famous - look forward to No.4 from this impressive work.
In close contact with Corelli was Francesco Geminiani, who travelled from Italy to London in 1714 & became a musical influence there. His concerto grosso "La folia" will be played virtuously & movingly by the chamber ensemble conducted by Alexandra Rossmann.
The Englishman Charles Avison, on the other hand, was a pupil of Geminianis in London - his elegant Concerto grosso No.19 in D major Op.4-7 impressively shows the change of musical styles in Europe.
Experience an exciting concert on the traces of music history from the Italian baroque to the English pre-classical period!
