Musicalta Festival : paths... from Biber to Ysaÿe

Good music comes to us through the Musicalta festival. Join us to the sound of international artists with great and varied musical styles! Come and thrill to the sound of music!

It was D'Anglebert who opened this path in the 17th century. At the same time, Biber composed the famous Rosary sonatas that would later inspire Bach. Then it was Ysaÿe (1858-1931), the brilliant violinist who enthralled the whole of musical Europe, who, inspired by Bach, delivered one of the ultimate works of violin literature. In 1723, Marin Marais, musician at the court of King Louis XIV, was inspired by the bells of the ancient abbey of Sainte Geneviève to deliver his famous Sonnerie.
Along this path, Bach makes the link. It is one of the most famous tunes of Western music that he writes in his 2nd suite for strings. He is also a precursor to the impressively inventive keyboard concertos.
