The Sebastians 2/28


Venetian Romance, Roman Vigor

February 28, 2014
Mees Hall • Capital University
1 College and Main
8 pm concert • 7:30 pm pre-concert lecture

The musical journey through the development of the trio sonata genre begins with sonatas
and dances by Venetian composers Dario Castello and Tarquinio Merula. After exploring trio sonatas by Roman composers Giovanni Battista Fontana and Arcangelo Corelli, the program returns to Venice with the grand finale of Antonio Vivaldi’s Folia. Praised for their “well-thought-out articulation and phrasing” (Early Music Review) and “elegant string playing … immaculate in tuning and balance” (Early Music Today), the Sebastians specialize in music of the Baroque and Classical eras and newly commissioned works for period instruments.

They recently won the Audience Prize at the 2012 Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition. They were also finalists in the 2011 York International Early Music Competition and the 2011 Early Music America/Naxos Recording Competition.
