Symposium 133

February 23, 2020
February 24, 2020

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.
