Brandon Acker / Anna Steinhoff / Wendy Benner / Lori Ashikawa
Four of Chicago's seasoned baroque artists come together in this trio-sonata program titled "Two plus two equals three!" How is that possible? See and hear for yourself as Brandon Acker's lanky theorbo (giant lute) and Anna Steinhoff's evocative baroque cello comprise the foundational "continuo" element of our trio, while Wendy Benner and Lori Ashikawa play dueling baroque violin roles. We open with a stately sonata by British composer Henry Purcell and then venture into Francois Couperin and Arcangelo Corelli's fanciful and ornately styled French and Italian explorations of the many colors of the baroque trio sonata throughout 17th and 18th century Europe.
