Marin Baroque Presents MUSA playing "The Birth of the String Symphony"
Marin Baroque Presents MUSA Baroque Orchestra performing...
The Birth of the String Symphony

Concert conducted by Derek Tam

The second half of the 18th century was an exciting, revolutionary time period in music.  Changes in style and the instruments themselves corresponded with a new type of ensemble and compositional form.  Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach rejected the conservatism of his father's music and helped to pioneer a new form, the string symphony.  Several generations later, a young Felix Mendelssohn looked back to JS Bach and synthesized this inspiration into creating his own neo-baroque string symphonies.  With one foot in the baroque, and one looking forward to the 19th century, this was an exciting time in music!  Join SF's MUSA, for an exciting program of string symphonies!
