Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
Flutist and Baroque specialist Giovanni Antonini conducts the esteemed Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in a panorama of 18th-century German orchestral music, bringing a flexible approach to the historically informed performance practice of which Antonini has been a champion since the 1990s. They begin with Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 1, a quintessentially Baroque work from around 1718 that brings German counterpoint to French dance pieces. Cello virtuoso Giovanni Sollima then performs Haydn’s Second Cello Concerto (1783), technically demanding and astonishingly innovative for its time.
