Europa Galante & Fabio Biondi, violin
October 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$75
“The searching and virtuosic Italian violinist Fabio Biondi and his excellent period ensemble, Europa Galante” (The New York Times) enthrall audiences with exhilarating playing that is “inviting, energetic, tightly cohesive, and transparent in texture” (Los Angeles Times). Gramophone boldly proclaims them to be “the world’s best.”
“Biondi and his colleagues… phrased with abundant color [and] paid particular attention to dynamic contrasts; pianissimo playing in slow movements…proved exquisite” (The Baltimore Sun).
