MELANCHOLY & MIRTH
February 22, 2019 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$30 – $45
One of Australia’s foremost baroque music ensembles, Salut! Baroque, presents a concert in Albert Hall with music by Mozart, Bach, Locatelli, Cimarosa, Matteis and Farina.
This concert extends beyond Baroque entertainments to include Classical Mozart, both father and son. Leopold (in the 300th year of his birth) is represented by his witty Toy Symphony, while Wolfgang’s celebrated Magic Flute is reimagined for the Csakan (the ‘walking stick’ recorder) in an arrangement from 1793 by Franz Ehrenfried, who was keen to capitalise on its extraordinary popularity.
