The German Violin School

The emergence of a new style of violin writing in Germany in the 17th century (under composers including Biber, Muffat and Schmelzer) was to have a profound impact on the rise of the violin as a solo instrument in this region. Sensual music for 1 and 2 violins, 2 violas and continuo written by tonight’s composers, from the South of the country, is typified by its florid and ornate style.

Muffat String Sonata No. 2 in G minor (Armonico Tributo)
Schmelzer Trio Sonata in E minor
Biber Sonata violino solo representativa in A
Schmelzer String Sonata No. 8 in G (Sacroprofanus Concentus Musicus)

An Introduction to Baroque Dance

Have you always wanted to know a little more about the relationship between baroque music and the dance steps that so often accompanied it, and were such an important part of courtly life in the 17th and 18th centuries?
Renowned Baroque dance teacher Philippa Waite leads a workshop suitable for all ages from 8 years upwards. No previous experience or partner required. The session will focus on basic steps found in typical dance types such as bourée, minuet, sarabande, gigue etc. as well as touching on the etiquette of the period.
Live music will be provided by members of The Brook Street Band.

The Italian Influence

An intimate chamber programme (for 1 and 2 violins and continuo) which explores the Italian influence on chamber music by Muffat and Handel, paired with works by Corelli, the pre-eminent Italian virtuoso violinist of the period.
Today we credit Corelli with providing the template for so many Italianate musical innovations in the baroque era. However, Muffat’s Italian-styled violin sonata of 1677 predates all of Corelli’s chamber music, and shows that Italian influence prevailed in Germany before Muffat even encountered Corelli.

Corelli Trio Sonata Op. 1 No. 1 in F
Muffat Violin Sonata in D
Handel Trio Sonata Op. 2 No. 3 in Bb
Corelli Trio Sonata Op. 3 No. 5 in D minor
Handel Cello Sonata in D minor
Corelli Trio Sonata Op. 1 No. 12 in D

The Concerto

What better way to end a festival than with a glorious programme of solo and orchestral concertos!
Muffat’s influence stemmed far and wide, incorporating both French and Italian style, and his hugely important legacy is beautifully illustrated in these wonderful works by composers far better-known than Muffat today, but who each owe him a huge debt of gratitude.

Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 BWV1048 in G
Handel Violin Concerto (Sonata a cinque) in Bb HWV288
Geminiani Concerto Grosso No. 12 in D minor (‘La Follia’; after Corelli Op. 5 No. 12)
Handel Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 10 in D minor
Muffat String Sonata No. 5 in G (Armonico Tributo)
