21st-Century Baroque

June 2016 graphic

In a bit of musical time-travel, SFCA collaborates with SFCA+1 guest artist Galax Quartet to present a radical, diverse, and engaging program of contemporary and Baroque music featuring new-old pairings of works. Six world premieres by Ted Allen, Veronika Krausas, Robinson McClellan, Roy Whelden, and SFCA's two resident composers are framed by masterworks of Bach, Purcell, and others. Together SFCA and Galax Quartet—two violins, 'cello and viola da gamba—explore the realm where early music and Baroque instruments intersect with new music and living composers.
