Saison 2017 

Barokoko – from Baroque to Classical


In 1680, Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber was the best violinist in Salzburg, while in 1770 Karl Kohaut was celebrated as the best Viennese lute player. Biber’s “table music“ is music of the high Baroque; Kohaut’s delicate, rococo-like, playful lute concerto is music of the early classical era. Between these two cornerstones we have, among many others, a charming oboe concert from Vivaldi and one of the most exceptional Telemann concertos for four violins “senza Basso“ (without bass). Performing is the Dutch ensemble Combattimento, which emerged from the renowned Combattimento Consort Amsterdam.
