Berliner Residenz Konzerte: Divertimento — musical pleasure at court with the Berliner Residenz Orchester
About the Event
Welcome to a concert that brings the sensual lushness of summer to life with ravishing compositions & in a cheerful way in the glamorous ambience of the Great Orangery.
The divertimento — Italian: pleasure — with its entertaining & dance‐like character was popular & widespread at European courts until the end of the 18th century. The Berlin Residence Ensemble conducted by Alexandra Rossmann plays wonderful representatives of this musical genre for you — including the Divertimento in D major No. 3 by Leopold Mozart & Joseph Haydn ́s Divertimento in E‐flat major Hob. II:6 with its lyrical‐expressive violin song in the central Adagio, which is framed by two melodically catchy, lively movements as an outer bracket & by two minuets as an inner bracket.
The Sinfonia in D major 'La Veneziana' by Antonio Salieri rounds off the summer music experience with romantic flair.
Feel transported from the fragile present to summery light‐heartedness for a concert with all your senses & enjoy the evening!
