SEATTLE BAROQUE ORCHESTRA: Party Bohemienne
January 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Bastyr University Chapel
Music from Dazzling 18th Century Prague
This concert is generously sponsored by Bill McJohn.
The Kingdom of Bohemia doesn’t get much airtime in the history of Baroque music. But far from being a musical backwater, 18th century Prague boasted a dazzling array of musical talents. Czech musicians worked in many of the great courts of Europe, and Count Wenzel von Morzin (the dedicatee of the beloved Four Seasons) maintained an orchestra in Prague that Vivaldi himself described as “virtuosissima”. Directed by Nate Helgeson, the SBO will bring you back in time exploring some of the finest Czech composers of the age.
