Bach, Handel and Vivaldi are a few of the many well-known composers whose work will be heard during an all-baroque performance this Sunday at McDaniel College. The ornate music of 1600-1750 Europe, this style is notable for complex harmonies, including counterpoint, and increased emphasis on contrast. The musicians are harpsichordist Don Horneff, violinist Nicholas Currie, cellist Tim Anderson and flutist Rodrigo Tarraza.
