Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra - Bach & The Italians
Does Johann Sebastian Bach possess an Italian flair and flavor?  Absolutely!  In this dynamic program, the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra will explore the specific influence of the major Italian composers of the Baroque on Bach's style. There is no doubt that Bach knew the music of the Venetians Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) and Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741), as well as works in the style of the Veronese composer Evaristo Felice Dall'Abaco (1675-1742). With the further influence of the Italian language and the Venetian opera, Bach composed his own works as a rich reflection of Italian musical style.  Incorporating the drama, spontaneity, elaborate harmonization, bold introductions and endings, and vivacious rhythms of these Italian composers, Bach was able to add an even richer layer with his own masterful gift of polyphony. Join us, as we partake in a veritable banquet of the Italian concerto, featuring our renowned Barthold Kuijken in a Vivaldi flute concerto, and members of the orchestra, Barbara Kallaur and Leela Breithaupt in a double flute concerto by Dall'Abaco. The orchestra will also perform Bach's famous double violin concerto (dubbed by violinists, fondly, "the Bach double") in which we will hear Vivaldi's concerto model elevatedwith an even more complex and varied texture, adapting the passionate Italian style to his own spectacular genius.
