What does it mean to be a German, French, or Italian composer? In the 18th century, as national identity became more defined, composers grappled with that question, expressing their emerging national styles while also freely borrowing from others. This cosmopolitan program of Corelli, Telemann, Couperin, Biber, Boyce, Royer, and Handel brings to life an enchanting diversity of styles.

Special Pre-Concert Recital: Come at 6:45pm to enjoy Bach’s Cello Suite no. 4 in E-flat major, performed by the Sebastians core cellist Ezra Seltzer. The rarely-performed fourth suite is magnificent—don’t miss your chance to hear it live!
