Triple Treble: Three Violin Masterpieces from the Early Baroque.Jessica Park et al

The turn of the 17th century saw the dawn of the stylus fantasticus, an improvisatory and virtuosic style of composition that was especially suited to treble instruments like the violin. Many composers were fascinated with the musical colors and textures made possible by three violins playing together.

This concert will feature a variety of works for this inventive combination chosen from works by composers like Dario Castello, Battista Fontana, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, and others.

Stephen Goist, baroque violin
Jessica Park, baroque violin
Alana Youssefian, baroque violin
