Experience the rich and soulful sounds of Vienna’s “new” baroque music, 1600s style.
We don't normally think of Vienna as a centre of baroque music. Its day would come a century later when Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven prowled its leafy streets. But, inspired by the “new” baroque music coming across the Alps from Italy, the Austrian capital was ignited by its own spark of the new in music, 1600s style.
This concert sends the orchestra back to Vienna’s baroque roots, recovering a time when Austrian composers rubbed shoulders with their Italian counterparts, a vital cross-cultural endeavour. Experience a time when the sound of the baroque was breaking like a wave over Europe, its rich and soulful sounds reaching deep into human emotions, revealing a world, now familiar, then novel and radical.
