Event Details
The Caladrian Ensemble presents The Pittoni Theorbo Duo, one of the only groups dedicated to exploring the uniquely magical sound of two of these instruments in consort. The theorbo was the “electric guitar of the 17th century”: a lute with a six-foot bass extension and a large body designed to make it loud enough to be heard in large groups. Its clarity of tone combined with lush watercolor washes of sound, results in a baroque experience like no other. The Pittoni Duo’s program will feature compositions from the French and Italian baroque by Jean Baptiste Lully, Robert de Visee, and Giovanni Pittoni.
