All baroque composers wanted to produce strong emotions in their listeners. Their music can speak directly to our feelings even after centuries of change. The music Jefferson Baroque has selected makes the performers say "Wow!" for many reasons. The concert is organized into segments like "Wow, that's flashy," "Wow, that's spiritual," and "Wow, that's romantic." Come and see the different ways 17th and 18th century music can move you.
