Vita Wallace, baroque violin
Beverly Au, pardessus de viole

This quintessentially French program features rare French lyra-viol dances by du Buisson and de Machy, music for the elegant but equally rare pardessus de viole so popular in 18th centuray France, a trio sonata by celebrated violinist/composer/child prodigy Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, and the iconic theorbo music of de Visee.
