Corde à vide
Off the Hook Arts is pleased to present the adventurous and dynamic duo Corde à vide—baroque violinist Jubal Fulks and harpsichordist Lorna Peters–will present “The Spirit of Improvisation,” a program of sonatas, chaconnes, and preludes featuring the music of Corelli, Purcell, Bertali, Couperin and Biber. Their concert repertoire, which spans over a century of Baroque music, exemplifies the spontaneous, improvisatory character of this period, and will showcase the startling, cosmopolitan harmonic language of the 17th century, the rich complexity of the German baroque, the exhilarating virtuosity and dramatic flair of the Italian writing, and the sumptuous textures unique to the French style. This interactive concert will feature questions from the audience throughout the evening.
Please join us as we gather at Walnut Creek on Walnut Street for an evening of music, beverages, and great company.
Doors: 6:30 pm
Concert: 7-9 pm
