Description

KONTRAPUNKTUS will be performing a 90-minute concert featuring a rare and dynamic classical repertoire commemorating influential Baroque composers Johann Sebastian Bach and Arcangelo Corelli, while also introducing new Baroque music from a young, local, living composer named Mark Moya. The program, entitled Mentors, Pupils & Scions, consists of music from legendary Baroque composers who were impacted by Bach and Corelli, including Francesco Geminiani, Pietro Locatelli, Domenico Scarlatti, Charles Avison, George Frideric Handel, George Philipp Telemann, Johann Adolph Hasse, Unico W.R. van Wassenaer, and Bach’s prolific sons, Wilhelm Friedemann, Carl Philipp Emanuel, and Johann Christian.

KONTRAPUNKTUS is a classical neo-Baroque orchestra led by conductor, Edward Hong. Joining him are violinists Eduardo Rios, Madeleine Vaillancourt, Hannah Ji, Kako Miura, violist Tanner Menees, cellist Vardan Gasparyan, bassist Marlon Martinez, among others. Together they represent a young, remarkable array of extraordinary talent from all corners of the globe with a dynamic affinity.
