Afternoon Baroque Concert: Rachel Podger & Lucie Horsch
Pure sounds and a rich imagination: put Rachel Podger and Lucie Horsch on stage together, and there will be no shortage. The musicians delve into Bach and Telemann's music and include traditional Celtic melodies in The Concertgebouw on June 2.
Rachel Podger and Lucie Horsch
Violinist Rachel Podger is the queen of the baroque. The recorder player and winner of the Dutch Music Prize Lucie Horsch: she can play everything, it seems. Pure sounds, a rich imagination and good taste, characterize both musicians. Their collaboration has previously been extremely successful, and they now continue in the exploration of baroque work and folk dancing.
From traditional Celtic melodies to Bach
This program is a two-way conversation in which the partners do not always talk simultaneously but sometimes have their say separately. Original works for two instruments by Telemann and Wilhelm Friedemann Bach alternate with solo pieces to which the violin and recorder alternately give their own colour. The English Dancing Master, published in 1651 by John Playford, is a collection of two-part folk dances based on Celtic melodies. The edition, supplemented and expanded over the next century, offers dance instruction in addition to music.
