Rococo – Musique à Sanssouci

A Berlin Concert
Dorothee Oberlinger/Ensemble 1700

In Potsdam 1747 a small summer palace was inaugurated, soon the palace achieved fame as as Museums temple: major composers congregated in the royal palace Sanssouci to associate with the musical Prussian king Friedrich II.

In collaboration with her musical colleagues from the Ensemble 1700 Dorothee Oberlinger has chosen selected concerts and chamber music of that time for her new Album “ROCOCO”. Amongst these was the court chapel cembalist Carl Philipp Emanuel, son of Johann Sebastian Bach and the concertmaster Johann Gottlieb Graun.

Also part of the selection are creations intended for the recorder from Georg Friedrich Händel, who visited Berlin in the 18th century are also part of the selection. With the first recording of this virtuosic flute concert by Johann Christian Schultze, likely to have been created 1768 and belongs to the last pieces made for the baroque recorder, the multiple “ECHO Klassik” prize winner Dorothee Oberlinger rounds off her versatile repertoire.

Organizer: Musica Bayreuth
