CORELLI BAROKKORKESTERon period instruments


Conducted by Martin Sildos


PROGRAMME: Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) and Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) brilliant Concerto grossos and concertos for various solo instruments

Corelli Baroque Orchestra on period instruments will perform with Estonian top soloists, conducted by Martin Sildos. The musicians will play on baroque instruments, led by the spirit of early times, just as the masterpieces by Corelli and Vivaldi might have sound like in the composer's lifetime in fancy Italian churches. Enjoy the style and elegance of Corelli and Vivaldi!


The beautiful music of Italian masters will be performed by Estonian top musicians who have been specialised on early music. The concerts will take place in Estonian churches that can be considered as cultural heritage, the interior and spirit of the churches will give a soulful quality to the music. On 20 October, the concert brings us to the historical St John's Church in Tartu, which preserves lots of Medieval terracotta figures and ornamentations that are unique in whole European Gothic style. The concert on 21 October takes place in two-tower Charles's church, built in the end of the 19th century for the greatest Estonian congregation in Tallinn. The church has been decorated with its furnishing, large rose window and grand church bells. The most valuable adornment of the sanctuary has considered to be the altarpiece by Estonian painter Johann Köler. The fresco of Jesus Christ was painted in 10 days and a farmer from Hiiumaa island was used as a model.
