Poeticall Musicke.John Rozendaal and Adam Young

A dazzling array of colors, textures, tonalities, and affects are elicited from two bass viols in the works of three masterful composer/performers of the seventeenth century: the eccentric Elizabethan courtier, Tobias Hume; the mysterious French esoteric, le Sieur de Sainte-Colombe; and the passionate Dutch virtuoso, Johannes Schenk.

John Mark Rozendaal has performed with Newberry Consort, King's Noyse, Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, Trio Settecento, Brandywine Baroque, and LeStrange Viols.

Adam Young has performed with groups such as Philharmonia Baroque, American Bach Soloists and Les Arts. He a student of Sarah Cunningham at the Juilliard School of Music.
