Ticket to Ride: A Musical Journey through Baroque Europe
Barthold Kuijken, conductor
The composers in “Ticket to Ride,” wherever they traveled to live in Europe, all had ties to the great Italian composer and violinist Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713). The program celebrates one of Corelli’s gifts to the world of music: the concerto grosso. Rather than having onesoloist, a concerto grossohas two or more. Corelli is represented by the first of his concertifrom Op. 6. Two of his Italian students have concerti grossiin this IBO program: Francesco Geminiani, who later moved to London, and Pietro Antonio Locatelli, who became a resident of Amsterdam. George Frideric Handel, a German who traveled to Italy and met and was influenced by Corelli, concludes the concert with one of his beloved concerti grossi.
