The Seattle Baroque Orchestra under the direction of  Rachel Barton Pine played the Early Music Guild's Town Hall program last Saturday evening, January 18, 2014.  Ms. Pine performed concertos for the viola d'amore, a seven-stringed cousin of the violin that reigned as a solo instrument during the 18th century. 

Dresden Concertos features works by Vivaldi composed especially for the viola d'amore virtuoso Johann Georg Pisendel, concertos by Pisendel, a trio sonata by Telemann, and a concerto grosso by Handel. Baroque oboes and natural horns join the strings of Seattle Baroque Orchestra for this exciting performance. READ THE Seattle Times REVIEW.
