PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE PRESENTS.
Baroque music was born in Italy, and over two centuries it was cultivated by a group of Italian composers who were devoted to bringing emotion and drama to every performance.
In this concert, Erin Helyard teams up with ACO Collective to explore the theatricality and passion of neglected masterpieces by some of the greatest and most influential composers of the Italian baroque. Alongside these gems, the program includes the world premiere of Paul Stanhope’s Giving Ground, a work which provides a modern reflection of Geminiani’s popular and virtuosic La Follia.
