Concert
Great Barrington, MA: Saint James Place: Crescendo. Melancholy, Desire & Joy. The warm and expressive tone of the Baroque flute (traverso) so moved its audiences when it emerged toward the end of the 17th century in Paris that it quickly became a very popular instrument there and in the rest of Europe. Corelli’s Sonatas Op. 5, originally written for violin, were arranged in his lifetime for the traverso. The Op. 5 collection is a masterpiece, and it influenced Baroque composers like Handel and Bach, who admired and studied them. Duo Les Inégales performs some of the greatest sonatas of these three composers, including Corelli's Sonata Op. 5/2, Handel's Hallenser Sonate No. 2 and Bach's Sonatas BWV 1032 and 1035. 6 pm.
