Round Midnight – Dorothee Oberlinger & Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca

16.9.2019, 20:00


Throughout the ages, the night and its ambivalence have stimulated artists’ imaginations. Dorothee Oberlinger, the world famous recorder player, anthologises the many facets of the night hours in musical form. Works by Vivaldi, Biber, Bach and Lully, Sephardic lullabies, motets and serenades tell of fabulous parties and dramatic loves, of yearnings, ghosts and the holiest night of all to end “round midnight” with Thelonious Monk’s legendary jazz standard of that name. Once again Oberlinger has invited the Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca to accompany her on this voyage through darkness as specialists for the Venetian repertoire.
