Les grands concertos baroques pour trois instruments
This concert was the outcome of a pedagogical project combining the Ambronay Baroque Academy young instrumentalists, recruited all over Europe, and the Radio Antiqua musicians, an ensemble supported within the European project: eeemerging (Emerging European Ensembles). Together, they worked on this program during a training period at Collegio Ghisleri of Pavia under the pedagogical responsibility and the musical direction of Enrico Onofri.
Violino Fantastico proposes an eclectic program honoring no less than five European composers from the end of the 17th century to the second half of the 18th century. All, on their own style, have been extremely innovative and have illustrated with their pieces the concept of virtuosity. Program develops those concepts around forms made for “3 soloists”, an instrumental typology chosen by composers for aesthetical reasons but also for symbolic reasons linked to the number three, a magical and sacred number.
