Explore Baroque Europe as Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra takes you on a musical journey from imminent 18th-century British composer Thomas Arne's uplifting overture for the opera King Arthur to Czech composer Jan Dismas Zelenka Hipocondrie à 7 Concertanti, a quirky meditation on hypochondria. Traverse the continent circa the 1600s and 1700s as this acclaimed Bay Area ensemble uses period-instruments to perform additional works by the likes of Italian composer Giuseppe Tartini, famed Frenchman Jean-Philippe Rameau, and the obscure German genius Johann David Heinichen. Broaden your harmonic horizons as this baroque bouquet comes to First Congregational Church of Berkeley.
A pre-concert lecture begins 45 minutes prior to each performance.
