Berliner Residenz Konzerte with Dinner: Dance of the Violins with the Berliner Residenz Orchester: Vivaldi & Telemann
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.
Let your palate be enchanted by selected delicacies in the west wing of the Great Orangery at 6 p.m. and then listen to a wonderful concert in the east wing at 8 p.m.
The three‐course menu with seasonal ingredients from regional cultivation, thematically coordinated with the concerts and creatively arranged.
