The vitality and versatility of the international baroque performance scene is once again celebrated in this season’s new Originalklang. The Diderot Ensemble launches the season with its focus on the halcyon days of the French trio sonata. François Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and Jean-Marie Leclair were masters of the genre, in which two melodic voices are intertwined with a bass line – dance-like and elegant.

Jean Rondeau is acclaimed not only for his performances of harpsichord works by Bach and Scarlatti but also for his talent as an improviser. Although rarely encountered in today’s system of classical trianing, improvisation is key to understanding harpsichord music of the Baroque’s composer-performers. Jean Rondeau’s improvisations aim to inspire through surprise: "In the absence of prior knowledge, the unexpected occurs," he says.

The award-winning ensemble Europa Galante reminds us with its name that the music of the Baroque era was an international affair. Travelling composers fostered a lively cultural exchange, which the Europa Galange now recreates under the direction of Fabio Biondi. We travel with the German Handel to England, with the Italian Boccherini to Spain, with the Spaniard Martín y Soler to Italy, and further afield.

The ensemble Les Accents, founded by Baroque violinist Thibault Noally, presents a remarkable rediscovery: an oratorio by Johann Adolf Hasse. The Hamburg composer, aided by his Italian temperament, narrates the distress, temptations, and hopes of the Israelite people during their flight from Egypt in his Serpentes ignei in deserto; expect operatic drama and virtuosity.

In addition to the subscription concerts of the series, we offer discounted tickets for an additional concert with Jakub Józef Orliński. In a concert titled Let’s BaRock, the celebrated countertenor demonstrates the infectious power of old music.
