Jude Ziliak and Elliot FiggMore than a century before Liszt’s and Berlioz’s names became synonymous with programmatic music, Giuseppe Tartini’s instrumental evocation of Tasso and Virgil was so powerful that he himself was reported to go into a mystical trance while playing. Jude Ziliak and Elliot Figg will present some of the earliest and most transporting program music ever written.

Jude Ziliak, violin
Elliot Figg, harpsichord

Violinist Jude Ziliak and harpsichordist Elliot Figg have been frequent collaborators in the decade since they met as students in Juilliard's Historical Performance program. Both active chamber musicians, Elliot is a member of Ruckus and ACRONYM, and Jude of Sonnambula and the American Bach Soloists.
