Great Music on Sundays @5 presents A THOUSAND GOLDEN STRINGS
Experience 18th century musical textures with a wide variety of string instruments, from the scintillating delicate sounds of Couperins harpsichord music to the plaintive expressiveness of Marais glorious writing for viola de gamba. A rarely heard instrument makes a special appearance: the salterio, a large dulcimer of psaltery, strung in brass (alas, not gold!), and played in this concert with finger picks. An altogether sonorous treat of the much beloved sounds of the Baroque era.
