Extravagant and Virtuosic Music of the German Seventeenth Century
April 13 & 14 8 pm
As our guest ensemble, we are proud to present Quicksilver, the hot new ensemble of virtuoso players of early Baroque music. At one of their recent concerts, The New York Times reported that “the audience was on its feet cheering and hooting as if it were at a rock show.” Fantasticus features extravagant music from 17th-century Germany for violins, sackbut, dulcian and continuo, with works by Buxtehude, Bertali, Weckmann and Schmeltzer.
All virtuoso soloists in their own right, and together their playing is drop-dead gorgeous.
