Capriccio Stravagante

Capriccio Stravagante examines the fascinating symbiosis of the Italian and German baroque styles. Beginning in northern Italy, Repast’s program works its way northward through Innsbruck, Salzburg, and Vienna, featuring music for violin, dulcian (the early bassoon), cello, and harpsichord. The program includes violin virtuoso Heinrich Biber’s F Major sonata and a modern “response” to Biber’s meditation: the Fratres of Arvo Pärt played here on baroque violin, baroque cello, and harpsichord.
