The Teenage Violin: Growth Spurts in the Seventeenth Century

Presented by Musicians of the Old Post Road at Online/Virtual Space

Jan 30 2021
The Teenage Violin: Growth Spurts in the Seventeenth Century

Violinist Sarah Darling presents and educational program discussing the history of the violin, with musical examples.

Originally used as an instrument for dance bands, the violin really grew to maturity as a solo voice between 1600-1700. Excitement over the flashy new instrument and its potential manifested itself in the Italian "stile moderno" and the German "stylus fantasticus" with highly virtuosic and experimental writing that will be explored in this talk with musical samplings.
