Watchful Hearts: 17th Century Music at the Hapsburg Court
The Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra presents a program blending music and narrative that gives insight into the tumultuous landscape of the Thirty Years War and its effects on the musicians of the next generation. Experimental harmonies, improvisatory zeal and zest, and freedom of affect and form all characterize this “Stylus Phantasticus.” Music by the greatest architects of this style, Heinrich Biber, Georg Muffat, Johann Schmelzer, and Antonio Bertali is both brilliant and introspective. Their compositions reflect the remarkable mindset and recovery of the people of Central Europe during this time. Personal accounts read from diaries of those who experienced the war offer an evocative frame of reference to highlight the imaginative storytelling of this music.
This event will be offered in both in-person and virtual formats.
In-person: April 30 | 7:30pm – Indiana History Center
