Stylus Phantasticus: Old and New
Explore the enigmatic musical world of Northern Europe with a sojourn through works by Germanic composers. Dieterich Buxtehude's compositions exemplify this 'fantastic style' that influenced contemporaries and successive generations of composers. Trio Speranza (Anna Griffis, violin; Cora Swenson Lee, cello; Jason Moy, harpsichord) explores the Stylus Phantasticus from its roots in Buxtehude through the tempestuous early works of J.S. Bach, and its evolution into the Galant style of Telemann, Abel, and others.
Trio Speranza is a dynamic new ensemble dedicated to presenting engaging and thought-provoking performances of both familiar and lesser-known repertoire from the Baroque era. The group, comprising violinist Anna Griffis, cellist Cora Swenson Lee, and harpsichordist Jason Moy, made their debut in a Boston Early Music Festival Fringe Concert at the historic Trinity Church on Copley Square in the summer of 2013, and won the Presentation Prize at the 2014 Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition in Chicago. Collectively, they are alums of the Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute and Tafelmusik Baroque Summer Institute, and frequently perform with such respected ensembles as Boston Baroque, La Follia, Music of the Baroque, Tempesta di Mare, the Newberry Consort, and New Trinity Baroque, among others.
