Juilliard Baroque Ensemble

March 30, 2019 - 8:00pm

Please note that this concert only will be held at Pleasantville High School.

Lovers of music played on historical instruments will welcome the return of members of the Juilliard Baroque Ensemble, who will kick off our spring season. 

Their unusual program will explore the ways violinist-composers of the 17th century first invented and then explored the sonata form, writing conversations among three violins.  Instrumentation will include, in addition to three violins, the cello, harpsichord, theorbo, and guitar.  It will include:

  • Sprezzatura: virtuoso music for violins from the 17th century
  • Gabrieli: Sonata XXI a tre violins
  • Falconieri: Sonata L’Eroica con sua Ciaccona
  • Marini: Sonata a 3 in Ecco
  • Castello: Sonata Undecima
  • Battista Buonamente: Sonata Seconda a tre violini
  • Scipriani: Toccata
  • Purcell: Fantazia
  • Rosenmüller: Sonata Quarta in C Major à 3
  • Schmelzer: Sonata a tre violini
  • Pachelbel: Canon and Gigue for three violins
