Концерт состоялся 6 June 2018 года
Why is baroque music so fashionable these days? Perhaps the growing popularity of non fiction literature is a related phenomenon. A plot is not enough for us, we look for hidden meanings and non-obvious ideas. That is, we want Knowledge, but we want it worded in a lively and literary way. All this can be found in the works of Baroque composers. Allegories and mysterious rhetorical figures combine with lightness that makes Baroque compositions friendly even to little kids.
Bach and his contemporaries’ elegant and melodious philosophy will be presented by a trio of organ, oboe and female voice.
