A number of the works on this program – Susannah and the Elders, Pygmalion, The Kuruc Rebellion, Jacob’s Wedding – are examples of the birth of programmatic instrumental music during the early modern era. This resulted in some incredibly engaging and enigmatic harpsichord repertoire. Enjoy music from the 16th–18th centuries that will uncover riveting stories from the past.
