Canceled due to the blizzard.

While we had to cancel this Thursday's Live Stream, we are happy that the technology allows us to revisit past events, including an earlier appearance by Jude Ziliak at the Midtown Concerts and the final piece from last week's concert by the Quartet Salonnières. We offer links to recordings of those two events and hope to see you at our next live stream in two weeks.

Sonate guerrieri ed amorosi.

Jude ZiliakMore 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.
