Buxtehude’s chamber music trios

Buxtehude trios

Thursday, April 30 at 7:30 pm
Pre-concert talk at 6:45 pm: Dr. Sara Ruhle Kyle

Holy Trinity Lutheran Church
3 West 65th Street (at Central Park West)


Stylus fantasticus, marked by its improvisatory freedom within the bounds of a rhetorical structure, found its highest expression in the works of Dietrich Buxtehude. The powerful burghers of the Free City of Lübeck enjoyed a lively intellectual and cultural life with frequent concerts; Buxtehude’s stylus fantasticus chamber music truly flourished in this free-spirited Hanseatic atmosphere of innovative musical expression. Four virtuoso performers – Cynthia Freivogel, violin, Arnie Tanimoto, viola da gamba, Daniel Swenberg, theorbo, and Gwendolyn Toth, harpsichord – bring you an evening of exceptional baroque chamber music.
