The 17th century's legendary "wild style", innovated at St. Mark's Venice by Merulo and Frescobaldi, was brought by Froberger to Germany, where it became an instant sensation.
Bay Area virtuosi David Wilson (violin), Lynn Tetenbaum (viola da gamba), and Katherine Heater (harpsichord), will present a sampling of this highly dramatic idiom, with pieces by Buxtehude, Erlebach, Krieger, and Schmelzer. Unusally, this music leaves the bass part to the harpsichord, while the viola da gamba and violin play equal roles in the trio sonata texture. Well-known to Barefoot audiences, these players rank amongst the world's finest interpreters of 17th-century German music. Don't miss this!
