SalonEra: Stylus Fantasticus

  • Monday, Feb 15 at 7:30pm ET

Tune in on February 15th at 7:30pm ET for Episode 11: Stylus Fantasticus! We’re joined by a spectacular team of musicians for a deep dive into the wild, exploratory music of 17th century Italy and Austria. Irish harpist Maria Cleary reimagines a famous Kapsberger prelude for her instrument, while baritone Jonathan Woody and violinists Tekla Cunningham and Julie Andrijeski share their passion for 17th-century music in conversations and newly-produced remote collaborations. These will include an ensemble sonata for violins and recorders by Schmelzer & Nicolaus Bruhns’ gorgeous cantata “Mein herz ist bereit.”
