Baroque Journey

Maison symphonique April 12, 2025

Baroque specialist Fabio Biondi takes the audience back through the centuries to revisit some of the most influential composers in music history. The journey begins with Corelli, who laid the foundation for modern violin technique and inspired his contemporaries across Europe.

Next is Locatelli, with one of his first concerti grossi that was strongly influenced by the master’s style. Then, we’ll visit one of Corelli’s greatest admirers: Johann Sebastian Bach, whose musical brilliance defined the Baroque era. For the occasion, Biondi will pick up his instrument to play with the evening’s soloist, Kerson Leong, in Concerto for Two Violins.

Our journey will circle back to its Italian roots with Symphony No. 4 by Mendelssohn, who prompted a rediscovery of Baroque music and Bach’s compositions nearly 100 years after his death.
