Join cellist Emily Davidson in an exploration of Baroque styles performed on period instruments.
The program is varied and reaches from the familiar Bach cello suites, which despite how often we hear them always take on a new life with a new performer—to the wild, intense, and obscure bass fantasia and duo canzona by Selma y Salaverde. In the middle, a Geminiani sonata that synthesizes both the Italian and French styles in the 18th century, and Corrette’s fantastic, exuberant “Le Phénix” for four bass instruments.
Other performers include Ben Katz, Emily Dahl, Peter Geiersbach, James Williamson, and Rebecca Shaw.
