Music@Menlo Concert Program I: The Path to Bach

July 15, 2017
6:00 pm
The Center for Performing Arts at Menlo-Atherton

The 2017 festival journey begins in the generation before J. S. Bach: through the ingenuity of such composer-virtuosi as Carlo Farina, Marco Uccellini, and Pietro Antonio Locatelli, the violin evolved from the modest fiddle of street musicians to the voice of musical nobility. Next to the works of these early innovators, Concert Program I features one of the iconic masterpieces of the instrument’s repertoire, Tartini’s famous Devil’s Trill Sonata. The latter half of the program brings together the Baroque period’s most influential composers—Arcangelo Corelli, Antonio Vivaldi, and Johann Sebastian Bach—whose sea-parting concerti simultaneously crowned a king of instruments and defined a musical era. Following the concert on July 15, join the Artistic Directors, festival musician, and friends to celebrate the opening of the season, at Fête the Festival, an outdoor catered dinner at the Menlo Park Arrillaga Family Recreation Center. Tickets $65, advance purchase required.
