We love the violin! (And it’s a good thing, since they are pretty essential when you play baroque music.) This concert celebrates the virtuosity and variety of the violin, from solo sonatas all the way to concerti grossi. Many seventeenth and eighteenth century composers were violinists, so they understood the way the instrument can sing, speak, and dance. For musicians like Arcangelo Corelli, the violin was his primary means of expression. George Frideric Handel was primarily a keyboard player, but he worked with violinists his whole life and his music reflects his love for the instrument.
