David Wilson plays Biber "Glorious" Mystery Sonatas
Highlights of the two immediately pre-pandemic seasons were the performance of the "Joyful" and the "Sorrowful" sonatas from Biber's ca. 1675 collection of "Rosary" or "Mystery" sonatas by Biber maven David Wilson and his fabulous continuo team.
These mesmerizing pieces were unknown until 1905 and present unusual technical problems, including the infamous scordatura (variant tunings, often quite radical, chosen for expressive purposes). We are all grateful to David for his mastery of these completely unique and stunning pieces of music.
This program, which concludes the cycle, features the "Glorious" sonatas. We return to the Hillside (Swedenborgian) Community Centre in El Cerrito for this program, which will run to about an hour and twenty minutes, a little longer than usual, in order to include all the pieces!
