Les Violettes and Ensemble Vermillian
Improvisation, or playing things that aren’t written on the page, is a key element in performing baroque music. Bay Area ensembles Les Violettes and Ensemble Vermillian team up for this concert of 17th- and 18th-century chamber music that highlights the spontaneous and performer-driven aspects of this gorgeous repertoire. Band Members and instruments include Corey Carleton, soprano; Frances Blaker, recorders; David Wilson, violin; Colin Shipman, viola da gamba; Barbara Blaker Krumdieck, cello; and Violet Grgich, harpsichord.
