La Follia performs 17th Century Masterworks from Eastern Europe
La Follia performs music from the Kroměříž collection. The collection represents religious and secular music composed by over 100 composers from 1664-1695, collected by Karl II von Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn during his tenure as Prince-Bishop of Olomouc (Olmütz) in the Czech Republic. Guest violinist and Kroměříž scholar Mimi Mitchell joins La Follia in presenting music by Vejvanovsky, Kerll, Biber, Bertali, Ritter and others.
This concert will be performed for the Annual Meeting of the Society for Seventeenth-Century Music in San Antonio, and we are eager to share this wondrous music with Austin audiences.
For modern classical audiences, these composers are not well known, but for connoisseurs, these composers are known for the masters that they are. Become a connoisseur yourself, and you will find out what you have been sorely missing.
