Guts baroque violin and baroque cello

When Arcangelo Corelli put his Opus 5 violin sonatas into the world in 1700, they made a bang so big that it rippled across Europe, forever changing the way people wrote classical music for the violin, and seriously upping the ante for the way people played it.

Join us on Sunday to see and hear what all the ruckus was about.

Corelli’s Opus 5 #9 sonata, one of the works that kicked it all off;
his student Carbonelli’s Sonata #1, by turns gorgeous, grand, and playful;
his student Locatelli’s Sonata #2, a piece reminiscent of CPE Bach (who was 15 when it was written) with its tender moodiness;
Vivaldi’s Opus 2 Sonata #1, a.k.a. “The Saddest Vivaldi Ever,” a different take on the same sonata structure that Corelli made famous
