Italian inspirations heralds Season Premiere concert by the Chamber Music Society of Colombo

“Inspirations, Revelations and Celebrations”, a concert of music inspired by the Italian style will be presented by the Chamber Music Society of Colombo (CMSC) on Thursday, March 22 at the Lionel Wendt Theatre at 7.30 p.m.

The programme is a journey of musical exploration, from an early Concerto Grosso of Corelli (op. 6 no. 4), which was an inspiration for Handel’s Concerto Grosso op. 6 no. 1 (HWV 319). The revelation of the concert to most listeners would be the epitome of the Haydn’s Stürm und Drang (German:“Storm and Stress”) period, the 44th Symphony nicknamed “Trauer” (German:Mourning).

The celebration is represented by Mozart’s very early 23rd Symphony, the earliest of his symphonies firmly in the standard repertoire, brimming with the teenager’s gift for melody, but also with some animated writing for trumpets. The concert will start with the overture/intrada to the very early opera “Apollo and Hyacinth”, K38 – an inspired foretaste of the master opera composer to come.

The CMSC under its artistic director Lakshman Joseph de Saram, is looking to present politically and culturally explosive music of modern Sri Lanka and South Asia. The concert is sponsored by Dilmah Tea.
