Al Rovescio

Baroque and contemporary music with Francis Colpron on recorders and traverse

5 instrumentalists

In this recital, Francis Colpron presents both contemporary works and rarely heard German music from the Baroque era. Contrary to convention, the 21st century will precede the 18th and hence the title of the concert — al rovescio, Italian for backwards! In the first half of the concert we will hear extraordinary recent compositions for solo recorder, while the second half will be dedicated to sonatas by Groneman, Graf, and Müthel for traverso, accompanied on cello by Mélisande Corriveau and on harpsichord by Eric Milnes.
