Court composers and travellers:
an instrumental journey through Europe


Our instrumental program includes music dedicated to Chalumeau, Violin, Traversiere and Basso continuo. The instrumental music was closely linked to the vocal one and aimed to reach the imitation of the voice itself; especially with regard to wind instruments, it is so close to the “canto” that it could be replaced with a written text.  The only and fundamental difference, due to the absence of the voice, is that fiction and expressiveness, no longer linked to the presence of the text, are brought to the highest levels through the colors and rethoric qualities of the instruments.
Starting from Vienna we will travel to Prague, passing through Dresden and Hamburg. We will then recognize the atmospheres of Naples and Venice with Porpora and Vivaldi enjoying the extroverts concertos and playful symphonies, rich counterpoint and changes of affetti.

Lenght: ca. 70′ including moderation and a small break.
