Around 1725, an Italian wind blew through Europe, and especially Vivaldi's composition style had an enormous influence on many German composers. At the same time Pergolesi caused a revolution in France, where public suddenly no longer knew how to deal with the traditional French style of Jean Baptiste Lully. Paris went through a period of serious arguments about too much Italian influence. Yet a peaceful solution was more obvious among German composers such as Händel, Fasch and Telemann: simply decided to combine the best elements of each national style.
France brought a whole culture of dance forms that can easily be found in Bach's orchestral suite, but to which a German solid structure was added. Italy provided the vocality one can hear in Händel, and Vivaldi's ritornello structure was quickly imitated by all in the instrumental concertos, of which Fasch is an excellent example.
This chamber music program is like a snapshot of what was very fashionable in the 1730’s in Europe. Bach even arranged Marcello’s oboe concerto into an organ work, thus absorbing some Italian vitamins into his repertoire…
Il Gardellino is an internationally renowned Flemish period orchestra, which will perform this concert with its chamber ensemble.
