In the golden age of Italian music, during the baroque era of the 17th and 18th centuries, Venice shone with a thousand lights and the artistic abundance that reigned there is still celebrated today. Marianne Piketty and the Concert Idéal, drawing on numerous unpublished documents, embark on a journey to the heart of this Venetian “school”, where so many musical trends, sometimes antagonistic or anachronistic, rubbed shoulders and allowed new and audacious projects to germinate without tension.
From Vivaldi’s virtuoso fevers to Ziani’s solemnity, from Strozzi’s affects to Turini’s dances, greeting also the majestic impulse of Gallo (whose music served as the basis for Stravinsky’s Pulcinella), marvellous musical pages are brought together in an intense synergy.
With a space and movement setting devised by choreographer Olivier Fourés, musicologist and Vivaldi specialist, Impressions vénitiennes pays a vibrant tribute to the sound mosaic of the Italian city with rare works, some of which have never been performed before.
