The evening’s program reawakens an era when composers were experimenting with formal invention and creating the first sonatas of Western music. This repertoire ranges from the avant-garde music of the early part of the seventeenth century to the contrapuntal ingenuity of Henry Purcell at the end of the century. With works for one, two, and three violins with basso continuo, the program will include music by composers such as Gabrieli, Castello, Uccellini, Biber, Schmelzer, Purcell, and others.
Robert Mealy is the director of the Yale Baroque Ensemble, whose members are Benjamin Charmot and Katherine Hyun, baroque violins; Daniel Lee, baroque violin and viola; Laura Usiskin, baroque cello; and Avi Stein, harpsichord. MORE
