The princes of the baroque era knew how to celebrate, including at Christmas in 1718. Bach wrote a violin concerto for his prince in Köthen, Manfredini published his Christmas Concerto in Monaco, Vivaldi delighted the imperial governor of Mantua with oboe concertos, and dall’Abaco had his concerti grossi printed at the court in Munich. Maria Bader-Kubizek invites you to join her on a round trip through the festive Europe of 1718.
