Moonlighters

Concert or Performance

14 Aug 2020

Salut! presents a concert of baroque music with works by Albicastro, Wassenaer, Herschel, Corbett, Steffani and Bonporti.

The struggle between creativity and livelihood was a necessity Baroque composers had to balance, not dissimilar to artists today. Our collection of little-known names had passion and talent but did not make a living from composing. Musicians usually found themselves at the mercy of others to survive unless were they born into the aristocracy or had a wealthy patron. However, these composers applied their wide-ranging skills to be employed elsewhere – as scientists, diplomats, spies, artists and in the military. Circumstance may have dictated their choice of profession yet, as moonlighters, their compositions still stand out for their charm, inspiration and inventiveness.
