The rise and fall of the outrageous and refined French baroque style and its struggle against the fashionable forces of italianisme as traced through the works of Lully, de Visée, Hervelois, Boismortier and Forqueray. A tour de force of virtuosic solo and ensemble music for bass viola da gamba, theorbo, and baroque guitar.
Founded in 2005 by viol virtuoso Josh Lee, Ostraka was a finalist in Early Music America’s 2012 Baroque Performance Competition.
