New Comma Baroque: Phillip W. Serna, viola da gamba; Emily Jane Katayama, harpsichord

The 17th and 18th centuries were filled with dramatic political and artistic turmoil in Poland – the once stable Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth was plagued by conflict from without and within. New Comma Baroque’s Phillip Serna and Emily Katayama will present a lecture recital tracing the Polish instrumental music through the 17th and 18th centuries, sampling 18th-century literature for viola da gamba and keyboard spanning the High Baroque, the Enlightenment and the earliest hints of Polish nationalism at the dawn of the 19th century. This lecture performance is presented in conjunction with New Comma Baroque’s November 2nd Academy of Early Music program Niech Żyje Polska! Long Live Poland!
