Chamber Music

Original sound: Julia Lezhneva, Luca Pianca and La Voce Strumentale

This concert is all about the intense emotions of love, sorrow and passion. The Early Music ensemble La Voce Strumentale and the soprano Julia Lezhneva take us into the emotional realm of Baroque opera heroines, virtuosically and poignantly set to music by composers such as Handel, Vivaldi, Porpora and Graun. The arias offer soprano Julia Lezhneva the opportunity to show the full range of 18th century vocal artistry. No less dazzling are the concertos and instrumental works by Telemann, Vivaldi and Hasse presented by violinist Dmitry Sinkovsky and lutenist Luca Pianca.
