Classical Rocks

Rodolfo Richter (violin and conductorship)

Vibrant passion in allegro di molto from Haydn’s Symphony in F minor, which posterity has dubbed “La Passione“; panicked fear and devilish purgatory in the finale from Boccherinis Symphony in D minor, which in a transcription was captioned with “Chaconne qui représente l’Enfer“ (Chaconne which represents hell); elysian calm and relaxation in the opening movement of Mozart’s KV 319, where the four-tone motif of the Jupiter Symphony is anticipated… a true musical shock to the senses. Ideal material for the Flemish Baroque orchestra with the ambiguous name “B’Rock“. Founded in 2005, it calls Gent home. They have already performed under the direction of René Jacobs, Skip Sempé, Rochard Egarr and other world class conducters without binding themselves to one. The orchestra is pleased to be performing with the violinist and conducter Rodolfo Richter, who has been behind the stand with nearly every leading “original sound“ ensemble. An energetic, expressive and indeed unrestrained grasp of the music exudes from the ensemble’s playing. B’Rock at the Haydn Festival: the promise of an exciting evening.
