Valencia Baryton Project

November 21, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

$15 – $55
La Jolla by the Sea

A string trio with four instruments? A harpsichord hiding behind the cello? The Valencia Baryton Project has dedicated itself to the performance of music written for an ancient and little-known instrument, the baryton. A cross between the viol da gamba and lirone (or lira da gamba), with 10 resonating and plucked strings down the back of the instrument, the baryton gives the traditional string trio an entirely new dimension. This unique group was originally scheduled to visit our series in 2022 and will bring a fresh program of old and new works sure to delight.
