Baroque&Before

On this edition of Baroque&Before, historically-informed violinist Eva Saladin, baroque cellist Daniel Rosin, and harpsichordist Johannes Keller present works by composers who lived or worked in Naples in the 18th century: Mascitti, Matteis, Cailò, Scarlatti, Lonati, and Piani. Tonight’s program was recorded on January 20, 2021 in Basel’s Stadtcasino, as part of the Basel Early Music Festival.

Thanks to WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, we’re able to offer tonight’s concert as a stream for 30 days following the broadcast. A blue “Listen” button will appear when the link is accessible.
