Delving Deeper - Jan. 30: The Teenage Violin: Growth Spurts in the Seventeenth Century by Sarah Darling

Saturday, January 30 at 7:30pm, join violinist Sarah Darling for an indepth look at the violin of the 16th and 17th centuries.

Saturday, January 30, 2021 - 7:30pm

Violinist Sarah Darling opens the series on January 30 with a performance and discussion of ambitious early works that she calls The Teenage Violin: Growth Spurts of the Violin in the 17th century. Originally used as an instrument for dance bands, the violin really grew to maturity as a solo voice between 1600-1700. Excitement over the flashy new instrument and its potential manifested itself in the Italian "stile moderno" and the German "stylus fantasticus" with highly virtuosic and experimental writing that will be explored in this talk with musical samplings by composers including Monteverdi, Castello, Bertali, Leonarda, Biber, and Corelli.
