Sydney Symphony Orchestra Goes Baroque
June 8, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - June 9, 2022 @ 7:00 pm
The Sydney Symphony Orchestra takes you to The Italian Baroque, featuring some of the greatest compositions of that grand era with concerts in Sydney and Wyong.
The Italian Baroque era lavished crowds with some of the most glorious and uplifting music of the time. The orchestra will perform five pieces from this era in this concert conducted by Baroque music specialist Benjamin Bayl in his debut with the Sydney Symphony.
Monteverdi’s intricate Sinfonia is a feat of of majestic writing. Gabrieli’s Canzona soars as it once did from the galleries of Venice’s San Marco, while Vivaldi and Corelli’s glittering concerti showcase their virtuosity in writing for strings. This ‘Italian style’ echoes through French composer Rebel’s audacious Les élémens.
The program: MONTEVERDI L’Orfeo: Sinfonia/ GABRIELI Canzona for Brass and Strings/ VIVALDI Concerto for Four Violins/ CORELLI Concerto Grosso No.4/ JF REBEL Les élémens
