Join Genesis Baroque for a sumptuous celebration of the father of the concerto grosso, Arcangelo Corelli, in a rarely heard performance of his complete Opus 6 Concerti Grossi. This critically-acclaimed period chamber orchestra is fast growing a reputation as a a dynamic and compelling voice in the Melbourne musical scene.
Consummate expatriate violinist Sophie Gent and Genesis Baroque concertmaster, Lucinda Moon, shine as soloists in these extraordinary works. Both musicians are notable for their nuanced, elegant approach and creative flair, and will enchant listeners through the sublime colours and conversations of Corelli’s masterworks.
The concert is in two halves at 5pm and 7:30pm, separated by a dinner break. These gorgeous works are presented as a double bill. In between the performances, bring a picnic, order a gourmet dinner hamper (via ticket page) accompanied by wine exclusively from Giant Steps, or eat at one of the Convent’s cafes or bars.
