Musical gatherings among friends and colleagues were an important part of social life in late 18th-century circles. These were important places for composers, patrons and musicians to network and present music together. This programme is comprised of relatively unknown music sampled from late 18th-century salons in Vienna and Naples.

The programme depicts the cycle of human life by celebrating the life of Marianna Auenbruggen – a talented Viennese noble lady and friend of Haydn, Mozart, and Salieri, who died far too young. The programme begins with a cheeky, youthful Anacreontic cantata by relatively unknown composer Domenico Corigliano, and proceeds to a more mature sonata by Marianna herself and a funeral ode written by Salieri to commemorate her untimely death. The programme concludes with a Mozart lied as a final farewell to the world, evoking the peace of passing. We hope to evoke the profound spectrum of Passions in this cycle.
