Miniature BaroqueConcerts & Performances
Led by René Schiffer, Principal Cellist of the famed Baroque orchestra Apollo’s Fire, NWS Fellows perform miniature gems from the Baroque era’s giants. George Frideric Handel’s Concerto Grosso is the picture of joviality, while Johann Fridrich Fasch’s Quartet is a shining spotlight for the horn. Teeter between stately and frenetic moods in Georg Philipp Telemann’s Sonata before the trumpet’s bright brilliance glistens over plush strings in Giuseppe Torelli’s Sonata. Father and son go head-to-head with two trios, as C.P.E. Bach delivers a triumph of equals and J.S. Bach has flute, violin and harpsichord vying for the spotlight. Tickets are $15.
