SPECIAL EVENT: Quicksilver Baroque | Jan 14

The (Very) First Viennese School

Long before Mozart graced the scene, Vienna enjoyed a thriving community of musical talent. The Holy Roman Emperors of the 17th century were great music lovers and connoisseurs who brought together virtuosos from Italy and native-born composers at their splendid court in Habsburg Vienna.

Join early music rock stars Quicksilver Baroque as they bring to life the sumptuous and emotionally extravagant music of (undeservedly) lesser-known masters such as Antonio Bertali, Johann Joseph Fux, Johann Caspar Kerll, Giovanni Legrenzi, Johann Rosenmüller, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, and Romanus Weichlein.

Robert Mealy and Julie Andrijeski, violins and directors; Dominic Teresi, dulcian; David Morris, viola da gamba; Greg Ingles, sackbut; Charles Weaver, guitar and lute; Avi Stein, harpsichord and organ
