3. „CONCIERTO FOR HARP AND HARPSICHORD”

Performers

Agnieszka Kaczmarek-Bialic – harp, Paulina Tkaczyk – harpsichord

Programme

C.Ph.E. Bach, G.F. Händel, J.S. Bach, A. Soler, J.N.P. Royer, A. Vivaldi

The programme of the concert focuses around the baroque era and the subsequent new musical aesthetics. The ideas of Galant style, rococo, Empfindsamkeit and Sturm und Drang permeate one another to create so heterogeneous and yet so coherent pluralism. This wonderful tour around  multicultural Europe leads from Italian expressiveness and ease through the sophisticated and graceful French style and Spanish temperament to appear in its purest form in German music crowned by the splendid work of J. S. Bach as well as the new stylistics, whose prime forerunner was C. Ph. E. Bach.
