Freiburg Baroque Orchestra
The programme at Helsinki Music Centre, consisting of the music of Corelli and Pergolesi, is manna for friends of baroque and classical music. The emotional and sophisticated music is enhanced by the clear and glorious sound that has become the trademark of this orchestra.
The concert reaches its zenith with a pearl of its era – Pergolesi’s La serva padrona is one of the most popular comic operas. An interesting mix of baroque and classical periods, the piece is an out-and-out pure farce about the power struggle within a relationship. The roles are performed by outstanding stars: Furio Zanasi sings the role of Uberto, who is tricked into marriage, and the South-Korean Sunhae Im glows as the queen of everything, the clever Serpina.
In co-operation with Jane and Aatos Erkko foundation and Helsinki Music Centre.
