Description

The sound of string players tuning their instruments often signals the beginning of a concert. What happens when you change up this familiar tuning?

Many baroque composers experimented with re-pitching some of the strings to draw different sounds and possibilities from the violin, a technique called scordatura. We explore one of the most popular of these re-tunings (AEAE), which offers a very open, resonant sound — evoking trumpets and vielles (medieval string instruments). We also say a quick hello to our fiddler cousins, who still turn to this tuning for some of their traditional tunes.

Please note: single ticket purchasers will be able to re-access this concert for a full 48 hours after the original broadcast time. You can revisit your ticket link, contained in your confirmation email, to watch until November 14, 2020 at 7:59pm EST.

Please note that a service fee of $3.00 applies to each ticket.
