Concerti all’arrabbiata


Concerti all’arrabbiata: some like it hot! Seventeenth-century Italy not only consumed great quantities of chili peppers, it was also the birthplace of virtuoso, explosive baroque music. The concertos of Platti, Vivaldi and Geminiani, with their furiously buzzing strings and fleet woodwinds, are perfect examples. These works inspired their musical neighbors in Germany, including Telemann, who penned a concerto for two intrepid horns as well as the Grillen-Symphonie. Gottfried van der Goltz and the musicians of the Freiburger Barockorchester offer fiery renditions of these thrilling works.
