In this programme the Dutch Artworks Ensemble performs music from the court of
Dresden at the beginning of the 18th esteem and played a prominent role in this thriving, cosmopolitan German city. Holding high positions at court were numerous illustrious composers and performers, additionally the most acclaimed foreign virtuosi (amongst them Antonio Vivaldi) frequently visited the city displaying their talents and performing their latest compositions. As a result, the level of musicianship was extremely high,
performed on the most modern instruments of the day. Essentially it was through music that the city gained its high level of prestige.
Of the prominent eighteenth-century musical genres present in Dresden at the time
(Italian Opera, orchestral music and religious works) chamber music enjoyed a high level of popularity. Its beauty, however, was privy only to the courtesans; visitors were thus privileged to hear it, if only by coincidence, from an adjoining chamber.
