Atlanta Baroque Orchestra: Winter in Amsterdam
Featuring Instrumental Concertos from the 1700s by Vivaldi, Dall’Abaco, Locatelli, De Fesch, van Wassenaer, and Valentini.
In the 1700’s, the great city of Amsterdam was where most of the music of Europe was published. Antonio Vivaldi and his colleagues became highly influential when their works were disseminated throughout the world.
The Orchestra’s director and lead violinist Julie Andrijeski will present audacious young composer Pietro Locatelli’s instrumental telling of the Greek myth of Ariana, abandoned lover of Theseus, conveying the sad story in his concerto "Il pianto d’Ariana."
A musical mystery was solved in 1980 when it was proven that famous pieces long attributed to Giovanni Battista Pergolesi were in fact written by the powerful Dutch nobleman and diplomat Unico Wilhelm van Wassenaer. The Orchestra presents his most famous concerto. Van Wassenaer would be surprised to know that his music is still played 300 years later, and that his beautiful melodies have been quoted by other composers, most notably by Stravinsky in his ballet Pulcinella.
Pre-concert talk at 3:15 pm
