Music of 17th-century Italy and Germany with Quicksilver

“The Early Moderns: 17th-century Italy and Germany.” Featured will be the virtuosic, experimental, unexpected, and deeply moving “new” music of Castello, Fontana, Merula, Weckmann, et al, the closest Western music has come to a pure, wordless rhetoric.  Robert Mealy & Julie Andrijeski, violins; Greg Ingles, trombone; David Morris, viola da gamba & cello; Dominic Teresi, dulcian; and Avi Stein, harpsichord & organ, explore the beginnings of the sonata, a revolutionary, purely instrumental musical form, with no agenda but the imagination of the composer and the passionate interplay of conversation.

I make sure to hear this group whenever I go to the Boston Early Music Festival.  They are spectacular.  It is also fun to watch Robert and Julie wordlessly communicate while they are playing.
