Juilliard415 with Rachel Podger
Rachel Podger, director and violin
Baroque chamber orchestra
Wonders of Baroque Italy
Music Before 1800’s season opens with one of our audience’s most cherished ensembles, the baroque orchestra, Juilliard415. The distinguished British violinist Rachel Podger leads, offering her skills as director and performer. The program contains music from 18th-century Italy by Corelli, Valentini, Vivaldi, Albinoni, and others. Seven varied concertos reveal the rich and conjunct timbres of winds and strings as well as the virtuosity of these emerging young artists.
“Juilliard415, the student orchestra of the school’s historical performance program, opened … the second half with the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3. The concerto was especially fine: you could see the joy in the performers’ faces and movements as much as you could hear it in the playing.”—New York Times
Note: Featured artist has been changed from Elisa Citterio to Rachel Podger.
The virtual program becomes available on Sunday, December 12, 4 p.m. ET, followed by a live Q&A, and remains viewable until December 26.
