October 20, 19:00 - Baroque masterpieces: J.S.Bach, A.Vivaldi

Music room of the Vasilchikov estate

Moscow, Bolshaya Nikitskaya Street, 46/17, p.1

The concert program will feature works by two of the most frequently performed and beloved by the public composers of the Baroque era: Johann Sebastian Bach and Antonio Vivaldi.

Bach's organ work will be represented by Fantasy in G Major and chorale preludes, which will be performed by the laureate of international competitions Anna Yurkova. In addition, the evening program included two arias by J.S. Bach for soprano, oboe and basso-contino from cantatas performed by laureates of international competitions, Honored Artist of the Republic of Khakassia Ekaterina Monisova and GASO artist Dmitry Kolupaev.

The name of the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi is associated with listeners primarily with his famous cycle of concerts "Seasons". However, the composer's creative legacy is much broader and includes about 90 operas, several hundred concerts and sonatas for various instruments, as well as church works: cantatas and motets. The audience will be presented with the sonata for oboe and basso-contino in C minor and the motet "Nulla in mundo pax sincera" ("There is no refuge in the world from grief and sorrow").

During his lifetime, Bach and Vivaldi never met. However, Bach highly appreciated the work of his older contemporary, which made organ arrangements of several of his instrumental concertos. One of them, a concerto in A minor, will be performed in the program of the evening.
