La Stagione Frankfurt have earned themselves a unique place among the leading early music ensembles on the international music scene. Besides the ECHO Klassik award and the annual award of the German Record Critics’ Award, they are also the winners of the BBC Music Magazine Award and Gramophone Disc of the Month. Tracking down forgotten masterpieces is a special concern of the orchestra’s founder, Michael Schneider. During the concert, we will hear arias from various operas by G. F. Handel and instrumental music by A. Vivaldi and G. Ph. Telemann. Various “stations” linked – as in M. Mussorgsky’s Pictures from an Exhibition – by brief “promenades” lead us in subtle stages from the restful tranquillity of a spring to the destructive forces of a sea storm. Musical magic guaranteed.
