The Yale Collection of Musical Instruments presents The Sebastians in a concert on Sunday, October 25 at 3:00 pm.
The performance, called Orfeo del Violino, will feature solo and trio sonatas by Arcangelo Corelli and his predecessors.
“As the legendary Orpheus used his music as a rhetorical weapon, Corelli brought a new level of virtuosity and expression to violin playing,” explain The Sebastians about this program. “Corelli’s infectious harmonic and structural language took Europe by storm, but it was his older Roman compatriots, including Lelio Colista, Girolamo Frescobaldi, and Alessandro Stradella, who set the stage.”
