For the third time, the annual Barocktage festival of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden brings together leading ensembles and outstanding artists for ten days of music in Berlin. As in previous seasons, the Pierre Boulez Saal joins the Staatsoper to host several concerts. This year, the festival focuses on two composers of different generations who were instrumental in shaping the transition from the Baroque to the Classical era: Christoph Willibald Gluck and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Europa Galante pairs Mozart’s “Milanese Quartets,” written during his stay in the northern Italian city in the early 1770s, with string quartets by Carlo Monza—a composer hardly remembered today but an eminent musical authority at the time with whom Mozart certainly crossed paths while in Milan.
