the music

Taken over by the "historically informed performance" movement, Baroque music has gradually disappeared from our concerts after many years of presence. The musicians of the OSR will prove that it is possible to play this music with modern instruments and yet remain close to the playing styles, tempi and articulations appropriate to the 18th century style.

The concert will conclude with the Double Concerto for flute and piccolo by a modern-day Baroque composer: the cheerful troublemaker Friedemann Katt, an Austrian composer born in 1945 who goes by the pseudonym Franz Xaver Frenzel. A gently iconoclastic composer, he uses elements of the history of music, from baroque to jazz, to create his own language; playful, joyful, expressive and deliberately offbeat.
