Concerti Grossi

Director | Chad Kelly

Wednesday 22 May 2024, 7:30pm

To open its 2024 orchestral series, Genesis Baroque returns to the Concerto Grosso with a new perspective, examining its voices and ideas through a different lens. In this popular Baroque form, we usually find an electric dialogue between a handful of virtuosic soloists and a Greek chorus of instrumental ripieni. However, on this musical journey, every player of the ensemble becomes the soloist. On its path we will encounter many of Europe’s national accents, as we uncover the essence of musical interaction and communication.
