Italian Arias

Musical journey in Italian language. Inspiring antique arias, written by Italian masters, who were creating Florentine Camerata up to the end of the XVI century. They shaped opera – the new and the most exquisite musical genre. Magnificent works by Scarlatti, Caldary and Vivaldi. „L’isola disabitata” overture by Haydn ends baroque style and brings us to the „Le nozze di Figaro” overture in Presto which proclaims classical style. It allows us to listen to Mozart’s genius and have a look into the Figaro character. 

It is not the ordinary concert, it is a kind of an idea, a dream come true, a part of the extensive, innovatory, artistic conception that allows us to grow and develop and gain experience. […] It is a striving for perfection.

Premiere of the recital was held on the 13th September 2020 in Beelitz-Heilstatten (Berlin),  during the Kultur BHS project – „Italienische Arien”.
