Bohemian ballad at the Ambronay Festival (I)
Forgotten baroque musics
For its 2006 edition, the Ambronay baroque festival shared musical discoveries with its public.
Ancient libraries and palaces of Europe are swarming with forgotten music, awaiting to be played back to life. So Monteverdi can stay in Mantua, Lully in Versailles and Vivaldi in Venice! For once, let’s forget about Haendel, Bach, Rameau and Mozart and let’s travel untrodden musical paths to the sound of ancient pieces, some of them played for the first time after their creation.
From town to town, it will draw the map of baroque Europe, and music will unite across borders.
Our musical journey starts at the court of Ludwig Wilhelm of Baden, in his Rastadt Castle. It will then lead us to Milan, to discover an uncommon instrument: the psalterion.
