Quicksilver

Numbered among the cultural revolutions of the 17th century was music. Composers consciously created a stile moderno of dramatic oppositions and vivid emotions. “Revered like rock stars within the early music scene” (The New York Times), Quicksilver vibrantly explores this virtuosic, experimental and deeply moving “new music” by Castello, Fontana, Merula and Marini, performed on baroque violins, cello and harpsichord. A preconcert talk by Robert Mealy, Quicksilver co-director, begins at 6:45 p.m.
