Close Encounters: Fantasticus

May 22, 2019

Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber

Featuring:
Patricia Ahern (violin)
Chris Verrette (violin)
Dominic Teresi (dulcian)
Lucas Harris (lute)

The stylus fantasticus (“fantastic style”) was all the rage in the 17th century: instrumental music written in a bold, unrestrained, and extravagant manner. The performers were urged to embrace an unbridled style of playing, virtuosic and spontaneous. 17th-century sonatas by Marini, Buonamente, Bertali, Fontana, Mielczewski, Schmelzer. This intimate chamber concert explores new aspects of Tafelmusik repertoire with an up close and personal encounter with the music.
