About This Program

The Baroque period in music is defined by invention and experimentation, and the setting for most of this action was the Italian peninsula. Working with all sorts of new musical forms, Italian composers developed their own individual styles that commonly revolved around a combination of drama and dance. In essence, they were the romantics before the romantics, or the rockers before there was rock and roll.

Prior to the Sunday, November 12 performance at Moeser Auditorium, there will be a pre-concert lecture on all things Baroque, featuring guest artist Nicholas DiEugenio and The COT's Niccolo Muti. This lecture is presented by Carolina Public Humanities and The COT.
