Die Alpen-Con­nec­tion


In this con­cert, the Bre­men Baro­que Orches­tra pres­ents a par­ti­cu­lar­ly exci­ting chap­ter in music histo­ry, name­ly music by Hein­rich Ignaz Franz Biber, who came from Bohe­mia, and his con­tem­po­r­a­ri­es. North of the Alps, the vio­lin vir­tuo­so was lar­ge­ly respon­si­ble for the fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of play­ing tech­ni­que on the vio­lin and also for the evo­lu­ti­on of various musi­cal gen­res such as the solo and trio sona­ta; It’s time to take a clo­ser look at this baro­que geni­us.

Based on his impres­si­ve cham­ber music coll­ec­tion “Har­mo­nia Arti­fi­ci­o­sa Ario­sa”, which Biber published in 1696, the orches­tra places his music in the con­text of various orches­tral and solo com­po­si­ti­ons from the nati­ons around the Alps. Both the tra­di­ti­on of the gre­at Johann Schmel­zer and the influen­ces of the Roman mas­ter Arc­an­ge­lo Corel­li play an important role in this con­cert and show the mas­ter­ly art of com­po­si­ti­on at the end of the 17th cen­tu­ry, in which a tur­ning point was announ­ced, espe­ci­al­ly in the world of strin­ged instru­ments.
