Konserthuset Stockholm’s audiences and members of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra share a deep interest in Baroque music. Violinists Lola Torrente and Gabriel Cornet will be accompanied here by cellist Daniel Holst and harpsichordist Sam Crowther in a programme of music by Johan Helmich Roman, Henry Purcell and Johann Rosenmüller paired with all-too-rarely played female Baroque composers.

Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre was a prodigy who performed at Versailles for Louis XIV at the age of five. She grew up on the little island of Île Saint-Louis in the Seine in the heart of Paris, where her father was an organist and an instrument maker. She composed chamber music, operas and solo pieces, and while her roots were in the French Baroque tradition, she was strongly influenced by Italian music.

Italian Isabella Leonarda (1620–1704) was one of the most prolific female composers of early music in the seventeenth century. She entered the Collegio di Sant’Orsola convent at the age of 16 and stayed for the rest of her life. We will hear one of her melodically beautiful and vivacious trio sonatas, composed in the early 1680s.
