BAROQUE 2000 (article first published : 2005-06-20)

The popular music ensemble, Baroque 2000, is to perform a concert on June 26 which features Tartini's violin concerto in D minor, the composer being known particularly for his Devil's Trill Sonata which he said was played to him in a dream by the devil. Now becoming increasingly renowned as one of the masters of the Baroque era, Tartini wrote a number of concertos for the instrument. The soloist is Valentina Koleva.

Corelliís Concerto Gross no.5 is one of that composerís remarkable contributions to the genre; he wrote the first great Concerti Grossi and they constitute the climax of his own output.

The first movement of Rameauís 6th Concert will be familiar to many as one of the models for Respighiís celebrated pastiche, The Birds. Rameauís four movement piece is full of grace, charm and humour.

The concert on June 26 takes place at St Olavís church, 214 St Thomas Road and starts at 11h30. Book at Computicket or at the door. More information from Michel on 031 312 5539 or at sursouth@iafrica.com
