De Tact et d’élégance

24 April 2021 @ 15 h 30

Works by Graf, Haydn and Mozart

For traverso, violin, cello and harpsichord

Transition eras are not the most favorable to the creation of masterpieces, but they never cease to fascinate us. That is why, starting from the 1750s, the “gallant” style started to appear everywhere in Europe, clashing with the rigid baroque form. It lightened the soundscape, cultivated an easier, more flowing and “natural” melody, therefore creating a somewhat lighter music, in a good way. In the 1770s, the Austrian masters, namely Haydn and Mozart, gave real depth to these new practices, exploiting bithematism and expanding new forms of music. But they could not resist the elegance of the gallant style, which they continued to apply for some time, especially in their chamber music.
