Performance on period instruments also includes Handel, Bach, Couperin, and Geminiani
The Yale School of Music presents the Yale Baroque Ensemble on Sunday, March 28, 2010 at 4 pm in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Hall (470 College Street, New Haven). Titled “Les Goûts-Réünis: Music of the Italian and French Baroque,” the program will trace the development of the brilliant Italianate trio sonata from Corelli through Handel and Vivaldi. Along the way, the concert will illuminate Bach’s transformation of the trio sonata, along with Couperin’s homage to the Italian style in his theatrical “Apotheosis of Corelli.”
The Yale Baroque Ensemble, the postgraduate period instrument ensemble of the Yale School of Music, is directed by Robert Mealy. Its members are Yale School of Music graduates Katie Hyun and Benjamin Charmot, baroque violin; Daniel S. Lee, baroque violin and viola; Laura Usiskin, baroque cello; and faculty harpsichordist Avi Stein.
