Festive Christmas Concert: Jan Vogler & Dresden Festival Orchestra

December 12, 2020at7:00PM (UTC)

Remind me about this show!

The Dresden Festival Orchestra’s Christmas concert takes listeners on a journey to the fascinating baroque era. Tracing musical paths between Dresden and Italy, the musicians have discovered tuneful works by Hasse, Porpora and Vivaldi. Hasse was court kapellmeister for 30 years in Dresden, having studied previously with the legendary Porpora in Naples. Pisendel, the court orchestra’s celebrated concertmaster, on the other hand, was a close friend of Vivaldi, who dedicated some of his works to him. The soloist on this festive occasion is cellist Jan Vogler, who joins the orchestra, which plays on historical instruments, and its concertmaster Chouchane Siranossian in inviting you to a splendid feast for the ears.
