From the simple elegance of early French duets to the rich harmony of 18th century Austrian sonatas for violin and viola, the variety of soundscapes in this intimate setting is surprising. The ear is kept under the illusion that a bass line is actually present, for no music would be complete without it - or would it? Music by Montéclair, Leclair, Kreutzer and Rolla.

Midtown Concerts sponsors lunchtime performances of music of the 18th century and earlier for anyone seeking a respite from the midtown hustle and bustle. Ensembles are chosen by a jury of early-music specialists from the metropolitan area.
