Festival artistic direction Dimos Goudaroulis
The title of this year’s festival suggests a small and exotic “garden” of baroque musical instruments and instrumental music. Chamber music of the 17th and 18th century using period instruments, with a repertoire of high aesthetic quality and sound timbres of particular sophistication. Baroque violins and cellos, viola da gamba and violone, baroque recorders and transverse flute, theorbo, baroque guitar and mandolin, harpsichord and pipe organ will present Italian, French, English and German baroque music in a series of four concerts. The festival begins with the presentation of The Musical Offering in its complete form, one of the last and most enigmatic works by J. S. Bach, and continues with the second concert, presenting the six splendid Sonatas for solo cello and basso continuo, Op. 14 by A. Vivaldi, once again in its complete form. The third concert brings forward a change of style and mood, with English and French Suites featuring dances of the 17th century, while Vivaldi’s music with its boundless imagination and inspiration returns in the fourth concert to close the festival. The concerts are accompanied by displays of paintings by baroque painters depicting instruments and musicians of the time.
