About the Event
Nature in the palace garden has awakened with spring — intoxicating scents & dancing butterflies delight our hearts. Inspired by this graceful play of nature, the Berlin Residence Ensemble cordially invites you to a concert in the Great Orangery, where the virtuously played violin parts almost come to life & almost figuratively dance around each other.
Wonderful examples of this are Antonio Vivaldi's concertos for strings and basso continuo — enjoy the Concerto in g RV 156 and the Concerto in g RV 157 with its sweeping finale.
Although Georg Philipp Telemann unabashedly admitted that he 'did not find the concertos easy', his Concerto in A major TWV 43:A4 is a brilliant piece in the Italian style — inspired by French suite music. Here, too, we find a firm duet of the two violins and a very lively dialogue between the strings — crowned by a gallant solo from the first violin.
The Berlin Residence Ensemble under the direction of Alexandra Rossmann plays a delightful concert for you that reflects the sensual spring dances of nature in the glamorous ambience of the Great Orangery.
