Quicksilver: coming to the Bay Area

San Francisco Early Music Society presents the West Coast debut of the acclaimed chamber group Quicksilver, called “rock stars within the early music-scene.” The Huffington Post named Quicksilver’s 2011 recording, Stile Moderno: New Music from the Seventeenth Century Breakthrough Album of the Year.

During a busy weekend, Feb. 28-March 2, Quicksilver performs The Early Moderns in Palo Alto, Berkeley, and San Francisco. The concerts explore strange and extravagant trio sonatas and related music from 17th-century Italy and Germany.

Quicksilver is co-directed by violinists Robert Mealy and Julie Andrijeski, with Greg Ingles, trombone; Dominic Teresi, dulcian; David Morris, cello and viola da gamba; Charles Weaver, theorbo and guitar; and Avi Stein, organ and harpsichord.
