The spare, note-covered page of a chamber score from the 17th century tosses performers a gauntlet that Ensemble Vermillian (California & North Carolina) take up with verve and delight. Whether in florid, highly ornamented passages for solo recorder and violin, or in long, sinewy strands of shivering stillness, this is the music out of which today's living chamber tradition grew. The La Grua Center's fine acoustic lends wings to these heavenly works.
Won't you join us for this sumptuous chamber feast, as June's welcome warmth surrounds us?
