The 17th century marked a time of musical change as composers moved away from the intricate polyphony of the Renaissance into the type of clear melodic lines that paved the way for solo instrumental sonatas, trio sonatas, the dance suite, and opera. Erik Schmalz, famed member of Piffaro and the Dark Horse Consort, joins Amethyst Baroque, along with soprano Krysta Therieau, theorbist Gregory Hamilton, and harpist Kelly Brozozowski for this program that features selections from Monteverdi, Castello, and other icons of the 17th century.
