Baroque Passions

Event Description

Matthew Greco – Baroque Violin

Anton Baba – Viola da Gamba and Baroque Cello

Anthony Abouhamad – Harpsichord

Join the eccentric band of historical performers, The Muffat Collective, for a musical journey through 18th century Europe. Featuring the most beautiful music from Italian cathedrals, French salons and German coffee houses, the performers will explore the history of the baroque violin, harpsichord and fascinating viola da gamba. Flirting with the limits of our human desire, these rarely performed works frenetically exchange love for hate or despair for joy. Through trios and dramatic solo works this program is a celebration of the human emotional states called affects in the 17th and 18th century.

With discussion and explanations about the composers and works, this is a special opportunity to get up close and personal with performers, their instruments and a style of music making that is sure to dazzle your senses and pull at your heart strings!

Tickets are $25.00 and include afternoon tea during a short intermission, and can be purchased from Trybooking.

Funds raised support the work of the Anglican Board of Missions (ABM) Sustainable Agriculture Project in Myanmar.
