Programme

One instrument was a must whenever in the Baroque era people wanted to make particularly festive music: the trumpet. Its brilliant, bright and flexible sound lent a composition a particular magnificence. The combination of a high voice and trumpet enjoyed especially great popularity – whether in church, on the opera stage or in the concert hall. The musical competition between the castrato Farinelli and a famous trumpeter at an opera performance in Rome is legendary; the trumpet was accompanying an aria. In this concert, soprano Anna Prohaska, Philharmonic princial trumpet Gábor Tarkövi and the Philharmonische Camerata will come together very amicably to perform Baroque arias and cantatas by Henry Purcell, Georg Friedrich Händel, Jan Dismas Zelenka and Johann Sebastian Bach for soprano, trumpet and strings. As varied as the occasions for these compositions were, they do have one thing in common: singer and instrumentalist perform highly virtuoso music.

And more brilliance can be heard in Pietro Baldassere’s trumpet concerto in F major and in Johann Sebastian Bach’s harpsichord concerto in F minor, whose solo part will be played by harpsichordist Raphael Alpermann. In addition, the Philharmonische Camerata will be playing music for string ensemble by Antonio Vivaldi and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. The group’s members all play with the Berliner Philharmoniker; these works give them ample opportunity to explore the balance between soloistic individuality and concerted homogeneity.
