Les Violettes
Les Violettes is thrilled to welcome Norwegian cornettist Elisabeth Opsahl to the Bay Area. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear the cornetto (a kind of early trumpet), played by one of the rising stars of the European early music scene! Our diverse program tours Italy at the turn of the 17th century, savoring the varieties of tunes on offer from the best-known composers of the time. Yet this is not music that is fully composed—rather, the focus is on improvisation, rhythmic variety, and the virtuosity of the performers. Think of it as 400-year-old bebop, and you’ll be on the right track.
A little abracadabra here, some sprezzatura there, and the result is truly enchanting music.
