1713: Corelli's Christmas Concerto
New York, New York
Tuesday, 10 December 2019 - 7:30 PM
Arcangelo Corelli was not only history’s first truly “modern” violinist, but a musician’s musician whose compositions were performed throughout Europe during his lifetime. His “Christmas Concerto”—Fatto per la notte di Natale—is an early, Baroque age miracle of tone painting. The high drama of the Nativity scene is thrust upon the listener from the outset; the pastoral visions of nearby shepherds provide soothing contemplation at the work’s conclusion. No doubt the magic generated by Corelli’s genius has made this work an audience favorite, and CMS offers it in the company of bracing music from five additional composers.
