The Fantastical Mister Biber
Agave Baroque brings their "brilliantly virtuosic... shining... profound playing" (-Early Music America) to the works of the 17th century superstar violinist Heinrich Biber.  Biber invented numerous new tunings (scordatura) for his violin, to achieve extended techniques, special tone colors, and "artificial harmonies."  Agave will explore his groundbreaking 1696 collection Harmonia artificioso-ariosa, where he assigns two parts to each violin, for an unusual five-part trio texture!  Biber blended the sacred and secular musical styles with the flowing, free-form stylus fantasticus ("the fantastical style") to create a completely new musical "modernism" that captures the essence of the late 17th century violin virtuoso.  The program also includes works by David Pohle, Jakob Kremberg, and Georg Reutter der Ältere.

Please join Agave Baroque for a complementary wine reception following the performance!
