Midwinter Concert: Electric Baroque

When: Sat., Jan. 21, 8 p.m. 2017

If the violin was the electric guitar of the 17th-century, then Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber was surely the century's Jimi Hendrix. Biber wrote stunning, innvoative sting music, bledning the church style with the fiddle-playing he heard in his native Bohemia. Live Oak Baroque Orchestra presents a program of virtuosic works by Biber from Fidicinium sacro-profanum (1682), a melding of sacred and profane, and from his last collection, Harmonia artificioso-arisosa (1696), in which the violins play in scordatura (alternate tunings). Some pieces will be played from the organ loft, using the Brombaugh organ for continuo, much as Biber's band performed
