Seventeenth-century Germany abounded in courts and cities with sumptuous musical establishments. Among the brilliant composers writing suites, dances famous to this day, and fine evocations of contemporary Italian and French style were Schein, Nicolai, Böhm, Kindermann, Froberger, Scheidt, and Hammerschmidt. Please join us for Arcadia Viols' memorable concert of this striking, songful, early Baroque music. Celebrated harpsichordist Frances Conover Fitch will join Arcadia's sonorous viola da gamba quintet. Wine reception to follow.
