All the feels.

Official Description

Crafted for the over-stimulated souls of today, this program explores the intense emotions and sensitive spirits of the last great era of decadence before the Enlightenment took the fun out of things. From the 'Empfindsamer Stil'—sensitive style—of W.F. Bach to the drastic mood changes of Hypochondria, this program explores all aspects of the 'true and natural feelings', the emotional response so valued for both performer and listener. Featuring works by Zelenka, Rameau, and W.F. Bach, this program will have you reaching for the smelling salts.

Faythe Vollrath & Stephen Gamboa (harpsichords)
