SEATTLE BAROQUE ORCHESTRA – Six Dresden Concertos
January 21, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$20 – $50
Early Music Seattle presents
Music of the Ages
Benaroya Hall: Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall
This concert continues the theme introduced in an earlier concert of the musical world of Johann Georg Pisendel (1687-1755) and also follows on our recent project of six Brandenburg concertos. Director of the court orchestra in Dresden for many years and a legendary violinist, Pisendel amassed a library of music with a truly international character. In this program we step away from his orchestral works to explore his music for smaller forces, featuring our principal players in concertos for violins, viola d’amore, oboe, oboe d’amore, bassoon, horns, and harpsichord, with works by Pisendel, Telemann, Brescianello, Cattaneo, and Böhm.
