Info

Part of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra's 2018-2019 Masterworks series! "Air on the G String," the second movement in Bach's Suite No. 3 in D Major, is unquestionably one of the most famous melodies in the Baroque era. Lully was the master of the lyric tragedy, and his Phaeton is a warning against excessive pride. This intricate tale, nicknamed "the people's opera" in 1683, focuses on Phaeton, the son of Apollo, who drives his chariot too close to the sun. Plus, Baroque dancers take the stage for Geminiani's La Follia. The second half of this performance presents Baroque music interpreted through a modern lens; Villa-Lobos' Bachianas Brasileiras No. 9 was inspired by Bach's compositional style, while Ibert's Divertissement reimagines the Baroque ballet suite genre.
