Quicksilver Robert Mealy & Julie Andrijeski, directors and violin
This exceptional ensemble of six musicians, including violins, viola da gamba, dulcian, theorbo, and organ/harpsichord, will be exploring the stylus fantasticus, the dazzling genre of the 17th-century German avant-garde that places the genius of the composer and virtuosity of the musician above all else. The concert will feature vibrant masterworks born of extravagant imagination by such composers as Bertali, Rosenmüller, Schmelzer, and Biber, all played with passionate intensity and stunning dexterity.
Presented in collaboration with the Boston Early Music Festival.
Preconcert talk at 7:00pm.
