Jewel of the City: Music of Dresden

Concert or Performance

7 Aug 2022 Once Only Event

During the middle of the eighteenth century, the court orchestra of the German city of Dresden was the most famous orchestra in all of Europe. Known for its brilliance and virtuosic performances, it pioneered a new kind of sound from composers within its own ranks, whilst attracting luminaries such as Vivaldi and J.S. Bach to write for it.

In this program Adelaide Baroque builds on its highly successful Zelenka project of 2021, recreating the splendour of this orchestra, this time featuring stunning arias from Dresden’s ‘power couple’ – composer Johann Adolf Hasse and his soprano wife Faustina Bordoni – the jewel in Dresden’s crown!
