The 2016-2017 Season

Programming for our 2016-17 season focuses on a topic that is as relevant today as it was in the 18th century: migration. The migration of musicians and their music in the Old and New Worlds shaped the musical environments in which these musicians found themselves, changing the course of music history.

Exciting Baroque rarities from Italian and German composers who migrated to Latvia, Poland, Denmark, and Russia. Works include a flute sonata by Müthel, the Drottingholm Music by Roman, a flute concerto by Scheibe, and a violin sonata by Dall’Oglio.
