Program Description:

Baroque Underground: Rare Treasures for Baroque Violin and Theorbo --  lesser known works of the Baroque era’s most beloved composers with the dynamic duo of Alana Youssefian and Adam Cockerham. Featuring an array of solo and ensemble works for violin and theorbo, Baroque Underground spans the national styles of the 17th and 18th centuries leaving no stone unturned. The small but rich instrumentation of the lyrical violin and florid theorbo promises to delight in rare works by Vivaldi, Biber, Caldara, and more.

Performers:

Alana Youssefian – baroque violin

Adam Cockerham -- theorbo
