Pre-season performance: La musica notturna di Madrid Thursday, September 28, 2023, 7 pm at the Salmagundi Club, 47 Fifth Avenue Adam Cockerham, guitar Luigi Boccherini: Guitar Quintet in C Major, Op. 30, No. 6, G. 324, “La musica notturna delle strade di Madrid” Antonio Vivaldi: Concerto for Strings in G Major, RV 151 Antonio Vivaldi: Concerto for Strings in G Minor, RV 157   This special pre-season chamber music performance for subscribers only presents an ACO string ensemble at the Salmagundi Club, a historic arts center on the National Register of Historic Places. The musicians are joined by Baroque guitar virtuoso Adam Cockerham, Associate Music Director of the Academy of Sacred Drama. The program opens with Boccherini’s Guitar Quintet, initially written for strings, a work quite popular in Spain during the composer’s lifetime. Attached to the Spanish Court of the late 1700s, Boccherini wrote the piece to evoke the lively atmosphere of Madrid at night. Its passe caille, or Passacaglia of the Street Singers section, has often been used in such modern settings as the 2003 film Master and Commander. Completing the program are two Vivaldi concerti written for string orchestra without a soloist. RV 151 is one of the composer’s best-known works, familiar to cinema-lovers from the Bob Fosse film All That Jazz and Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette.   Tickets, priced at $125, are available at, or by calling the ACO at (212) 362-2727, ext.4.
