Café. Courtly music from the Orient and the Occident
Works by G. F. Handel, A. Vivaldi, J. D. Heinichen, G. Ph. Telemann, J.-B. Lully, F. Couperin,
A. D. Philidor, A. Steffani, Dede Efendi, Zaharya, Sultan Selim Han III., Tanburi Mustafa Çavuş and
A concert which shows just how thrilling Baroque music can be: Mehmet Yeşilçay and his ensemble show the early interest of Handel, Purcell and Vivaldi in the Ottoman Empire, which in turn took on board the music of the western world but using its own stylistic means. They combine the musical traditions of Ottoman music with music from Europe, basing their musical performance on musicological and historical research.
Café – chamber music, arias and courtly dances from the Orient and the Occident which you can hear wherever coffee used to be served – in the salon, seraglio, boudoir or pavilion. A creative synthesis of both worlds!
