The Teenage Violin: Growth Spurts in the Seventeenth Century
January 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST$10 – $25
Violinist Sarah Darling opens the series on January 30 with a performance and discussion of ambitious early works that she calls The Teenage Violin: Growth Spurts of the Violin in the 17th century. Pulling it away from its roots as a “dance band” instrument, daring composers from Italy to Germany to England demanded virtuosity from players, transforming the violin into a flashy solo instrument. Featured composers include Monteverdi, Castello, Bertali, Leonarda, Biber, and Corelli.
