An Italian Gallery
Italian virtuoso in EnglandEnsemble Alter Ego | Eleonora Bišćević, flauto traverso · Arianna Radaelli, spinet
A programme like a picture gallery. That’s what you can expect in this concert by the Alter Ego ensemble: a contrasting yet consistent sequence of portraits by different Italian authors. All of the composers worked in England and influenced the English musical culture of the mid-18th century. This time of transition between the Baroque and the classical period, also called galant period, and the programme selected are the perfect fit for the instruments played by these musicians: flauto traverso and spinet.
Italian flautist, Eleonora Bišćević plays the flauto traverso in orchestras and ensembles of world reknown, such as Le Concert des Nations (Jordi Savall), Gli Incogniti (Amandine Beyer) and La Cetra Baroque orchestra (Andrea Marcon).
Italian cembalist, Arianna Radaelli will play the historical 1768 spinet from Edinburgh belonging to the collection of the Schloss Weißenbrunn Foundation. Since January 2023, she has been professor of cembalo at the Stuttart Music Academy, and she is much in demand internationally as a solist and as a member of various reknowned ensembles.
