The Repast Baroque Ensemble returns to Brooklyn Heights this coming Wednesday, October 13 with “Dueling Violins — Harmony and Strife in the 17th Century,” a concert featuring Repast’s new violinist, Natalie Rose Kress, along with guest violinist Beth Wenstrom, and Repast members Stephanie Corwin on bassoon, Gabe Shuford on harpsichord, and Sarah Abigael Stone on cello and viola da gamba. They will play music by Biber, Buxtehude, Schmelzer, Marini, and Bertali.
In this early period of violin repertoire, the technical exploration of the instrument’s possibilities — as well as the formal experimentation of the period — were thrilling and reflected the dramatic upheaval of Europe coming out of a time of major plagues and the trauma of the 30 Years War.”
The concert will take place in the McKinney Chapel of the First Unitarian Church, 121 Pierrepont Street (between Monroe Place and Clinton Street) starting at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $30 general admission, $20 seniors, and $10 students. You may purchase or reserve them here or pay by cash, check, or card at the door.
