Angelic inspiration and demonic possession take turns driving some of the most dramatic works of the Baroque. Tartini claimed that his fiendish "Devil's Trill Sonata" was played to him by the devil himself sitting at the foot of his bed, while Biber's "Passacaglia" depicts the protection of a guardian angel. In Vivaldi's "Damnation Sonata" the oboe becomes a wayward soul dragged down to hell. Trios by Arcangelo Corelli, and Marin Marais, who "played like an angel" contrast with works by Antoine Forqueray, who "played like a demon". Don't miss House of Time's exploration of these mythic extremes in baroque music, capped by a special edition of La Folia (The Madness of Spain) ‌ ‌ ‌ 

The High Baroque is in full bloom in this program of quartets by Vivaldi, Telemann, and Johann Christian Bach with guest flutist Melanie Williams. These conversational pieces are by turns light, airy, fanciful, and virtuosic. Help us finish the season in “style galante” and enjoy the brighter, lighter side of the baroque era.

Program:

Quartet in G major from "Tafelmusik" by Georg Philip Telemann

Oboe sonata in G minor by Giovanni Batista Platti

Concerto RV 98 "Tempesta di Mare" by Antonio Vivaldi

Concerto RV 88 "La Pastorella" by Antonio Vivaldi
