Musical Mélange

Musical Mélange

Salut! presents a concert of baroque music with works by Telemann, Rameau, Gluck, Marini, Geminiani, Blainville and Soler.

Emboldened by the stirring rhythms of Spain, enchanted by the gypsy melodies of Eastern Europe and drawn to the inventive harmonies of other cultures, composers delighted in the endless possibilities of new styles of music. This was a period of great discovery and exploration that led to curiosity in the exotic.

Each new musical discovery opened up new knowledge and possibilities, blending the unknown with the familiar. Royal courts competed to remain at the cutting-edge of innovation, and cultural diplomacy demanded compositions that could be gifted as musical peace offerings.

Composers had never been more important, even playing an important role in mending post-war political allegiances.
