SFEMS14.15 BrochurecoverENCOUNTERS—
Xfrom the edge of medieval Europe to the baroque avant garde

With sparkling harpsichords, spirited flutes and drums, the poignant drama of viols and violins, the subtlety of lute and guitar, and the sensuous marriage of voices and brass, SFEMS’ 38th concert series embarks on a thousand-year journey through European music:  from the haunting sounds of the ancient Mediterranean and Middle East, to the brilliance of Venice at the dawn of the baroque, to the lush resonance of Salzburg’s strings.
