THE ALCHEMICAL VIOLIN: WORKS BY MUFFAT,
VERACINI, J. S. BACH, C. P. E. BACH, AND PISENDEL
Trio Settecento, headlined by violin virtuosa Rachel Barton Pine, performs a program exploring the violin as a vehicle of metamorphosis. The music this instrument produces transforms listeners, and skilled players are themselves transformed by long periods of study, travel, or by bargaining with the devil. Hear masterpieces by violinist composers associated with Germanic court cities famous for their alchemical cultures, namely Prague (Muffat) and Dresden (J. S. Bach, Pisendel, and Veracini).
