The theme for this evening's program comes from the set of works comprising Biagio Marini's Affetti Musicali. The term affetti refers not only to the ability of the violin to move the emotions and imagination of the listener—to conjure what vocal music achieves through a text—but also to the improvisatory nature of the violin's expression as inspired by the voice. Our musical journey will take us through the works of ever younger Italian composers—from 17th-century works by Marini, Torelli, Legrenzi, Corelli, Caldara, and Vivaldi to mid-18th century works by Sammartini, Veracini, and Caporale—exploring each composer's individual and innovative conceptions of the string instrument voice.
