The Cherry Trio (Elizabeth Gaver – baroque violin, Penny Hanna – viola da gamba, Michael Peterson – harpsichord) return to The Cherry for their annual New Year’s performance on Sunday, January 1st at 3:00pm. The trio, along with guest violinist David Wilson, will perform music from the seventeenth century: trio sonatas by Purcell, Rosenmüller and Muffat; a Marais suite for viola da gamba; and a harpsichord solo by Fischer.
The French, Italian, German, and English styles of this period stand in contrast to one another, but are also sometimes combined. Typical for the early Baroque period, these works express a wide range of “affects” or emotions – the melancholy adagio, stately allemande, exuberant passacaglia and much more!
