SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10TH
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
We'll spend time with composers who played, and loved to write for, the bass instruments that you can't fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane. We'll also explore music written for violin threesomes, and hear chant from a 14th century manuscript called the Thomas Gradual.
