We wish you and your family a safe and very merry holiday season. See you February 6, 2014 for our presentation of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra: Bella Napoli.
Despite earthquakes, war, pestilence and the occasional Mount Vesuvius eruption, baroque Naples boasted a superb music scene.
With Bella Napoli, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and guests the Vesuvius Ensemble celebrate that vibrancy by recreating a musical snapshot of a day in the life of baroque Naples.
Two contrasting types of music share the programme: the classical repertoire of the royal court, and the traditional music heard on the street. Refined concertos and sonatas by Leonardo Leo, Alessandro Scarlatti and Francesco Durante rub shoulders with effervescent tarantellas, earthy street songs sung in various regional dialects, and arias from comic operas.
