Tempesta di Mare | Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra & Chamber Players

May 12, 13, 19 and 20

two weekends of solo, chamber and orchestral concerts for our 10th anniversary season

We mark the completion of our first decade with our Opus 10 Baroque Music Festival, two weekends of musical 10’s: Opus 10, Number 10, BWV 1010, etc. The first weekend opens with Opus 10–Chamber, including trios and quartets by Haydn, Vivaldi and Couperin, followed by Opus 10–Solo, a round-robin recital of solo works by Bach, Weiss, Frescobaldi and others. The second weekend brings two performances of Opus 10–Orchestra, featuring one of Leclair’s jaw-dropping Opus 10 violin concertos, plus music by Handel, Vivaldi, Scarlatti, and Stanley.
