Bloomingdale School of Music (BSM) is pleased to present The Frog, the Cat & the Fiddle: Music in 17th Century Germany on Friday, October 28th at 7 pm featuring BSM faculty and guest artists. Admission is free. The concert will be held in the school’s David Greer Recital hall at their home base located at 323 West 108th Street in Manhattan.
Join us as we explore these rarely heard works in an intimate setting.
Beneath the cheerful animal noises and jovial array of mimicked instruments lies a demanding virtuosity and intricate technique that ultimately influenced the violin music of J.S. Bach. This concert presents the vivid programmatic music of the most important composers of violin music in 17th century Germany. Led by BSM faculty member Margalit Cantor on baroque violin, she is joined by Marina Fragoulis, baroque violin and Gabe Shuford on harpsichord.
