The Splendour of the Baroque

past event


Sydney Symphony Fellows in concert

Each of these hand-picked pieces gives every Fellow their moment in the spotlight, contrasted with captivating textures for the whole ensemble.

Georg Philipp Telemann was one of the most important composers of the late Baroque and early Classical era, writing myriad works for combinations no one had ever attempted. His intricate and energetic works for small ensemble inspired all those who came after him, including JS Bach and Handel – and Christoph Graupner. Graupner was an influential and prolific composer in his own right, and his work bubbles and bursts with all the grandeur and character of the era. His music is now being rediscovered – in this energising concert, hear why he deserves to sit alongside the greats of the Baroque.

Presented by Sydney Symphony Orchestra
