What a great idea. If you don't like Baroque music .. you suck.

Here's some Telemann

L'Orfeo is a lovely opera composed at around the early 1600's. Pretty accessible too me thinks !

What a rush!

I had never heard this version of Corelli's "La Folia" before, skaltezon. I feel it is wonderful...the best I've ever heard. Your friend who introduced this piece to you must be a sensitive "soul" with excellent taste!

The song makes me fall in love with the violin all over again and with the fact that people make and enjoy such music. I love it when a piece causes you to feel as if you yourself are the violin vibrating when the bow is drawn over you, giving you delightful chills...which I feel at many places when listening to this piece but especially after 2:47 as the bass notes become so frenzied. I also like the contrasts in the piece, in which the placid ocean whips up to stormy waves so quickly that it's quite a trip.

Manfredo Kraemer, the violinist according to the YouTube notes, has a delicate yet strong, rasping touch, doesn't he? I'd never heard him play before, but now I want to search him out.

The video you posted is actually part I of Corelli's "La Folia." Here is part II, in case you want to hear the conclusion. Lovely thread idea, btw!

Corelli's 'La Folia' Violin Sonata in D Minor, Part II

Baroque music for guitar: Gaspar Sanz. Two short (but great) vids: Canarios played by a young John Williams in 1975, and Españoletas played by Pepe Romero:




AMERICAN BAROQUE anyone? I mean from the American continent. Manuel de Sumaya (Mexico, 1678-1755) and Tomás de Torrejón (composer of the first opera of the Americas: The Blood of the Rose, Peru, 1701):

Bach's Brandenburg Concerto *is* lovely, skaltezon.

The players in the two videos you posted are much more animated than I usually see in chamber orchestras. I enjoyed watching them more than a regular orchestra because the players' individual personalities are more pronounced.

You can also see them interacting with each other: they are really playing...not just playing an instrument, but playing together. The sort of play you mean when you're a child and ask a friend, "Do you want to come over to play?"

I hadn't thought of there being American Baroque! Thanks for sharing these, Zaqarbal. I particularly liked this video of John Williams that you posted. I'm always pleased to see male classical guitarists who defy social male-female gender conventions for the sake of their music by growing their own picks! :p

Here's a pretty harp piece that is tearfully and plaintively pretty in places: Handel's Harp concerto in B flat major, HWV 294. If you start listening at 3:42, you'll hear what I feel is one of the sweetest passages in any piece of music at 3:48, and again you hear it at 5:30.

Handel, Harp concerto in B flat major, Op. 4/6, HWV 294

And to complete the instruments' review... the keyboards. Domenico Scarlatti. And his main follower Antonio Soler, "the Franz Listz of the harpsichord". Scott Ross playing both:



Bach's Goldberg Variations. Scott Ross again:

Since no-one but me really cares about the flute () I'll share some beautiful flute music composed during the Baroque period. I have the sheet music for a lot of these pieces

Vivaldi - Flute Concerto in D Major, RV 428


Vivaldi - Flute Concerto in A Minor, RV 440


Vivaldi - Flute Concerto in C Minor, RV 441


Vivaldi - Flute Concerto in G Minor, RV 439
