  • As the holidays approach, many give thanks for their blessings, and for music lovers, there’s nothing to be more grateful for than the entire Baroque era, lasting roughly 150 years until the death of Bach in 1750. The art of chamber music was born during that time, performed on newly-improved instruments by the greatest composer-virtuosi of the day.
