March 23, 2017 8:00 pm. Twelve guitars, two double basses, one conductor and fifteen years of Baroque music: This is the Forestare guitar ensemble in all its virtuosity! The group has taken part in the creation of nearly 50 original works and arranged a hundred pieces for performance, making it the guitar ensemble with the largest repertory in the world. In this concert, we will hear the three major schools of the Baroque era – the Italian, the German and the French – with Vivaldi's Folia and L'estro armonico concerto, Bach's BWV 651 Fantasia super for organ and Brandenburg Concerto no. 3, as well as a suite of four pieces from Lully's Bourgeois Gentilhomme.
