Seattle Baroque Orchestra closes its season with a program that spans the late 17th century, one of the most exciting periods in music history. Tormented by war, plague, and destruction, those years yielded some of the finest orchestral works we celebrate today. Under the direction of Alexander Weimann, SBO explores the foundation of the Baroque chamber orchestra form with works from Corelli, Biber, and Lully as well as Georg Muffat’s concerti grossi Delirium amoris, Dule Somnium, and Saeculum.
“A sense of humor pervaded the excellently-played concert, showing up even on musicians’ faces, playing such lighthearted music and apparently enjoying themselves as much as the audience.” -City Arts
