About the concert programme

From 1650 to the mid-18th century, Italy exerted an almost magical attraction on composers from all over Europe, who developed tremendous musical activity there and at the same time creatively integrated their experiences into their own compositional work. Georg Muffat, after his Italian studies, combined the French with the Italian style of music; Handel, who met Corelli among others in Rome and composed operas for theatres in Venice and Florence, was well equipped to write successful operas in the Italian style in London.

The ensemble El Gran Teatro del Mundo unites young, internationally active musicians with a high affinity for baroque music with the desire to inspire people across the generations for the music of the 17th and 18th centuries. Named after the baroque mystery play of the same name by the Spanish poet Pedro Calderón de la Barca from 1655, it is characterised by a special intensity of expression as well as lively and colourful playing. In its still young career, the ensemble has already celebrated successes. In 2018, for example, El Gran Teatro del Mundo was selected for the Eeemerging grant (Emerging European Ensembles) as part of the Creative Europe programme for the promotion of young early music ensembles and was a winner of the Cambridge Early Music Prize at the renowned Early Music Young Artists Competition 2019 in York. It is no wonder that the specialists in historical performance practice make guest appearances at many important music festivals such as the Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht or the Festtage Alter Musik Basel.
