Ensemble Resonanz: Concertos und Caprices

An Italian programme in the Recital Hall: a concert stream with Riccardo Minasi and violin virtuoso Ilya Gringolts. Available from 26 February 2021, 19:30.

Rousing orchestral numbers and virtuoso violin solos: the Hamburg Ensemble Resonanz celebrates Baroque music. They present six concerti grossi by Arcangelo Corelli, who turned this genre into a trend like no other composer did. Corelli composed a total of twelve concerti grossi, works where a group of soloists engages in a musical dialogue with an orchestra, and scored a set of absolute hits with them. The solo part is played by Russian violin Ilya Gringolts, who pulls out all the stops of his breathtaking virtuosity in solo pieces by Salvatore Sciarrino und Niccolò Paganini. The concert is conducted by Baroque specialist Riccardo Minasi, who regularly delights Hamburg audiences together with the Ensemble Resonanz.

»One can hardly play the violin more expressively and uncompromisingly than Gringolts.«
