View the program

Brooklyn BaroqueAt the end of the Baroque period in France, an interest in a virtuosic, more Italianate style coincided with the emergence of the cello as a solo instrument. This program will explore French galant music for cello and harpsichord, with pieces by Joseph Bodin de Boismortier, Christophe Moyreau, and Jean-Baptiste Barrière.

David Bakamjian ~ cello
Rebecca Pechefsky ~ harpsichord

Brooklyn Baroque debuted in the fall of 2000, when cellist David Bakamjian joined the long-standing duo of Baroque flutist Andrew Bolotowsky and harpsichordist Rebecca Pechefsky. Remaining core members Pechefsky and Bakamjian now collaborate with the finest early music specialists in the New York area. Brooklyn Baroque is the ensemble-in-residence at the Morris-Jumel Mansion.
