dresden concerti landscape draft page 6 2048x1448

The Dresden court was an opulent cultural hotspot in the early 18th Century under the ambitious reign of King Frederick Augustus II, who invested in developing the city as a brilliant centre of art, music, and architecture. The king attracted some of the most inventive composers from across Europe, who developed a dynamic style that reflected the rich tapestry of their musical backgrounds. Dresden Concerti explores works that epitomise the Dresden court style, and the musical traditions that influenced it, from Leipzig to Venice; a celebration of galant style in all its shimmering glory.
