Elisa Citterio director
Bliss, grief, delight: experience a kaleidoscope of emotions with 18th-century music that will open your heart and mind.
Curated and directed by Elisa Citterio, this concert is a microcosm of our season theme, “Passions of the Soul.” In their quest to awe and inspire, 18th-century composers strove to describe the desires of the soul and touch the hearts of listeners with poignant and captivating music.
This program takes you on a winding journey, visiting the peaks and valleys of the emotional landscape: from the grandeur of Lalande’s Chaconne—inspired by the magnificent fountains of Versailles—to Locatelli’s mournful Sinfonia Funebre, and Telemann’s suite “La Bourse,” an irreverent depiction of the roller-coaster of emotions experienced by investors in the stock market.
