Stylus Fantasticus: the Baroque violin between Italy and Central Europe
This program is a journey throughout Italy, Germany and Austria, three nearby countries but with much defined personalities throughout the seventeenth century, a period characterised by important musical novelties. This program presents a dialogue between the two king instruments at the time, the harpsichord and the violin, which can perfectly understand each other despite their basic language differences. In this dialogue, the Stylus Fantasticus –a fantasy style based on the search for new effects and creativity– will be the main leitmotiv.
