“What really counts isn’t whether your instrument is Baroque or modern: it’s your mindset.”  – Sir Simon Rattle


What would it be to step back in time, just for a moment, to listen to the music of Barbara Strozzi or Leonora Duarte as it was when it was new?  We are fortunate to have musicians and historians today dedicated to presenting that music on the instruments for which it was composed.  We’ll hear some of those performances today.
