Take the warmth of Italy. Add the energy of the baroque, plus the novelty and glamour of the very latest in musical technology: the violin. Today we celebrate the Italian concerto, a sunburst of creativity, flamboyance and sheer musical imagination that took Europe by storm – and transformed the way we listen.
Tonight, we’ll meet some old friends: who doesn’t love the showmanship and melody of Vivaldi’s L’Estro Armonico, or the unchained exuberance of a Corelli Concerto Grosso? Locatelli, Valentini and Mossi are less well-known, but every bit as entertaining. AAM’s leader Bojan Čičić leads a hand-picked team of virtuoso players to rediscover a fabulous lost world: music that never loses its power to seduce, dazzle and delight.
This performance is part of AAM’s subscription series discount.
