Fantasy, Fiction and Form
Telemann Burlesque de Quixotte
Purcell Fantasia upon one note
Schmelzer Die Fechtschule
Mozart Adagio and Fugue in C minor
A chance to experience psychedelic chromaticism and harmony in music, from Purcell’s obsessive ‘one-note’ Fantazia, to the vividly depicted unhinged behaviour of Telemann’s Don Quixote, to warlike whackiness in Schmelzer’s ‘Fencing School’ and Biber’s boisterous (and in places drunkenly cacophonous) Battalia, armed with daring new string techniques. Meanwhile Mozart combines fantasy and form in one work, progressing from a poignantly dissonant opening to a toweringly dramatic fugue.
