At the Grunewald Hunting Lodge, nestled by forest & lake, the chamber music ensemble of the Berlin Residence Orchestra invites you to a summer baroque pastoral.
The Ouverture in G is one of the few surviving compositions by Johann Bernhard Bach, a cousin of Johann Sebastian Bach & pupil of Pachelbel. It sounds atmospherically in the rural ambience of the castle courtyard.
The Concerto in G minor RV 156 for strings and basso continuo by Antonio Vivaldi with its summery esprit & its almost wild informality merges with the songs of nature on the shores of the Grunewaldsee & recalls the atmosphere of summer festivities under the open sky, which were common at court & in the countryside during the Baroque era.
Also fitting the rural ambience is the Ouverture in G - one of the few surviving works by Johann Bernhard Bach, a cousin of Johann Sebastian Bach & probably a pupil of Pachelbel. The piece brilliantly captures the summer mood of nature around the castle & enchants with its warm sensuality.
A ravishing concert of nature-inspired baroque works & enjoy the romantic ambiance!
