The Italian Baroque

When

Wednesday 8 June from 7pm to 9pm

Cost

Starting from: $86

The Italian Baroque lavished crowds with some of the most glorious and uplifting compositions of the time – 5 of which you’ll experience tonight. 

In Monteverdi’s intricate Sinfonia, we hear a breathtaking moment of majestic writing. Gabrieli’s Canzona effortlessly soars as it once did from the galleries of Venice’s San Marco, while Vivaldi and Corelli’s glittering concerti showcase their virtuosity in writing for strings. This ‘Italian style’ echoes through French composer Rebel’s audacious Les élémens. It’s a vivid, colourful and relentlessly inventive ride – a musical creation story unlike anything you’ve heard before. Conductor Benjamin Bayl, a specialist in Baroque music, is our guide.
