Saturday May 20, 2017, the Hochrheinisches Kammerorchester had a festive concert to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Conducted by Leonardo Muzii, they played a very interesting program.
The concert started with the ‘Kleine Sinfonie’ by Paul Juon. A beautiful piece, with a delicate balance between romantic and modern music. This was followed by the ‘Violin concert in D-Moll’ by Felix Mendelssohn. The soloist for this concert was Giovanni Barbato. A performance I will remember for a long time.
After the break the orchestra was joined by the Compagnie enSuite. They performed baroque dances while the orchestra was playing pieces by Lully, Delalande, Rameaux, Telemann and de la Coste. It was clear that the dancers were extremely skilled. Despite the (obvious) need to dance perfectly synchronized, it was clear the dancers really mastered their act: they cleary had a tremendous amount of fun.
