Join violin virtuoso, Daniel Hope as he traces the extraordinary history of the violin from the late Renaissance through the Baroque era, a dynamic period when violinists and composers were liberated to seek new, original ways to express themselves on this fascinating new instrument. For this intriguing concert, Hope is joined by an ensemble of world-class musicians, performing on modern instruments but using bows from the Baroque period. Compositions by Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, and Telemann are complemented by works from the lesser-known Falconieri, von Westhoff, and Matteis. During the concert, Hope shares a narrative that illuminates the interconnections between the composers through the extensive cultural exchange that was taking place throughout Europe. Hope has been praised as “among the best in the world as well as the most thoughtful” (The Observer, London). This program is brought to life by an ensemble of two violins, cello, lute, harpsichord, and percussion.
