Muse of Fire
February 2February 5, 2023

Violinists Alan Choo and Emi Tanabe have won the hearts of audiences with their soulful, playful, and fiery virtuosity. Joined by 7 other friends on strings, lutes, harpsichord, and organ, they delve into the passionate music of 17th-century composers. Heinrich Biber’s joyful and dance-like sonata on the Assumption of the Virgin Mary meets a “fencing match” by Schmelzer. Singers Andréa Walker and Edward Vogel bring compelling spirituality to music of Bach’s predecessors, including Buxtehude.
