Host

Experience the limits of the violin through the virtuosity of the Italian Baroque masters and some original pieces by Nicholas Wilson.

Program currently includes selections from:

The Devil's Trill - Giuseppe Tartini (1692-1770)
Tartini allegedly told the French astronomer Jérôme Lalande that he had dreamed that the devil had appeared to him and had asked to be Tartini's servant. At the end of the lesson, Tartini handed the devil his violin to test his skill, which the devil began to play with virtuosity, delivering an intense and magnificent performance. So singularly beautiful and executed with such superior taste and precision, that the composer felt his breath taken away.

Labyrinth Pietro Locatelli (1695-1764) Harmonic Labyrinth
Locatelli wrote the following inscription beneath the first-movement capriccio: "Laberinto armonico: 'Facilis aditus; difficilis exitus.'" This can be translated to mean, "Harmonic Labyrinth: Easy to enter; difficult to escape!"
