Boston Baroque's concertmaster Christina Day Martinson completes her tour de force survey of one of the pinnacles of the virtuoso violin repertoire – Biber's Mystery Sonatas for scordatura violin. Martinson will play multiple violins with a different tuning for each sonata. Boston Classical Review called last year's performance of Part I "a flourish of technical complexity and musical wizardry," and the Boston Globe wrote, "Day Martinson…didn't just survive, she triumphed. Aficionados will be waiting with bated breath [for Part II]."
