Airs of Caledonia in Berkeley
February 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm UTC-8
David Greenberg, baroque violinist and Cape Breton-style fiddler extraordinaire, joins Musica Pacifica for a program of exciting 18th-century Scottish traditional and baroque music. In this high-energy, foot-tapping program, Cape Breton’s driving strathspeys and reels, soulful airs and merry jigs are heard alongside more studied compositions of Purcell, Barsanti, and Matteis and The Division Violin.
The music of ancient Scottish composers James Oswald, “Red Rob” Mackintosh, and Niel Gow will delightfully blur distinctions between classical and folk music. Greenberg has been praised as both “one of the most impassioned folk-fiddlers you’ll ever hear,” (Winnipeg Free Press) and “the best baroque violin soloist in Canada, if not North America” (Halifax Mail-Star).
Judith Linsenberg, recorders; Ingrid Matthews and David Greenberg, violin; William Skeen, cello; Peter Maund, percussion; Charles Sherman, harpsichord, with guest artist, David Greenberg.
