Harvard Baroque Chamber Orchestra Fall Concert

Date: 

Sunday, November 18, 2012, 4:00pm to 5:30pm

The Harvard Baroque Chamber Orchestra featuring Douglas Ballliett '07, bass

This concert, walking the fine line between lovely and loony, reconstructs the world of bassist Domenico Carlo Maria Dragonetti, a Venetian virtuoso who managed to cross paths, over his long career, with everyone who was anyone. His Bass Concerto headlines the program, along with a grab bag of many of his favorites and friends - a Vivaldi double flute concerto, a Corelli concerto grosso, a Bach chorale, a
Beethoven dance, a Mendelssohn prelude and fugue, and Mozart's miraculously terrible "Musical Joke." Bassist Douglas Balliett returns to Harvard for a pyrotechnic tour de force: fistfuls of small notes on a very large instrument!
