7:30PM, Cullen Theater of the Wortham Center The renowned Catalan ensembles Hespèrion XXI and La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Ensemble Tembembe of Mexico under the direction of the incomparable Jordi Savall, perform a musical dialogue from the Old Spain, the Mexican baroque and the living "Husteca" and "Jarocho" traditions.
Trio Sonnerie, Monica Huggett's longest running and smallest group, comes from the UK to present the choicest pick of Europe's chamber music from the Baroque period. Biber's astonishing “Mystery Sonatas” for virtuoso violin contrast with exquisitely refined French music for viola da gamba and sprightly tunes from Jacobean England. Of course, the Harmony of Nations wouldn't be complete without J.S. Bach, here represented by a magnificent sonata for violin and harpsichord. www.sonnerie.org.uk
