Characteristics of the program:

The works of Pero P. Locatelli, Antonio Vivaldi and Giovanni Battista Pergolesi are only a small sample of_cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58_cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58_the most important Italian composers.

Although Locatelli's work is not extensive (only around 10 opuses), his violin works have an irreplaceable place in the history of music. Sonatas opus 1 of a young Catholic priest called the Red Father, Antonio Vivaldi, represent the composer's first works composed while working at the girls' orphanage Ospedale della Pieta in Venice. His sonata in E minor is a sample of his 90 sonatas for string instruments and basso continuo.

In year 2016, we commemorated the 280th anniversary of the death of the composer GB Pergolesi, who composed the Stabat Mater to the text of the well-known sequence St. He wrote Bonaventure at the age of 26 just a few days before his death. The French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau said of Pergolesi's work that it touches the soul and is the most wonderful duet he had ever heard.
