The Bach Society of Charleston presents the North Carolina Baroque Orchestra Chamber Players performing works by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber (1644-1704) that demonstrate the technique of scordatura. Baroque violinist David Wilson will re-tune his instrument for each sonata to create varied sonic effects. Barbara Krumdieck, baroque cello, and Barbara Weiss, harpsichord, will accompany him in this emotionally powerful performance of the Rosary Sonatas from The Glorious Mysteries.
