In their next concert Orquesta Barroca de Tenerife, Auditorio de Tenerife’s resident group, will transport the audience to a  grand Italian aristocratic lounge dating back to more than 300 years ago. Dall’Italia is taking place at 7:30 pm on Thursday, the 14th at Sala de Cámara. This programme, which is the first this year and third in the 2018/2019 season, marks a milestone in the young history of this Baroque ensemble, as it will be conducted by a woman: Lorena Padrón. She will be both leader of the orchestra and conductor.

The programme, outlined by the group’s artistic director, Conrado Álvarez, starts with Violin Concerto in E Flat Major, by Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741), followed by Concerto grosso, in F Major Op. 1 Nº 7, by Pietro Antonio Locatelli (1695-1764).

After the interval comes Diverse bizzarie sopra la vecchia sarabanda ò pur ciaccona, by Nicola Matteis (1686-1768), followed by Concerto spagnolo a cinque, in C Minor, Op. 10 Nº 11, by Tomaso Albinoni (1659-1761). The evening closes with La musica notturna delle strade di Madrid, Op. 30 n. 6, G. 324, by Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805).

Accompanying Padrón, historicist musicians playing this repertoire include Sergio Suárez and Ignacio Ramal, Baroque violins I; Laura Díaz, Leo Rossi and Giovanni Déniz, Baroque violins II; Iván García and Melchor García, Baroque violas; Fernando Santiago and Diego Pérez, Baroque cellos; Silvia Jiménez, double bass; Carlos Oramas, theorbo; and Raquel García, harpsichord and organ.
