Symposium 133-QUINTESSENTIAL II Current Season > Symposiums


Sunday, 23 February 2020 @ 5:00pm
Monday, 24 February 2020 @ 7:00pm

Baroque string quintets by Biber, Albinoni, Muffat, Scheidt, Lawes and others.

Alongside the discoveries of Galileo and Newton, the 17th century witnessed the invention of opera and of the instrumental sonata.  The music of this age of exploration straddles the complex counterpoint of the Renaissance and the dazzling spectacle of Baroque drama.  Join us for new discoveries at the first symposium of the year.
