× Music@Menlo’s fifteenth-anniversary season examines the unfolding of music through the lens of an instrument whose makers, players, and composers shaped the evolution of music itself: The Glorious Violin. A miracle of technology that has not required an upgrade for over three hundred years, the violin has been a driving force in the flowering of musical art. Each and every disc of Music@Menlo
LIVE’s 2017 edition celebrates the synergies between the immortal composers and great violinists—from the innovative composer-performers of the Baroque period, through the technical wizards of the Romantic era, to the pioneers of instrumental expression in the twentieth century. This timeless set of recordings tells the incomparable story of a little wooden box, so beloved for so long and by so many all around the world.
