The Virtuosa Series

Infusion Baroque

General Audience
Early Music

Infusion Baroque is proud to present The Virtuosa Project! What began as a concert season dedicated to music composed by or for women from the 17th-21st centuries now includes a touring programme and The Virtuosa Series, a webseries dedicated to four women of the 18th and 19th centuries: Princess Anna Amalia of Prussia, Lise Cristiani, Teresa Milanollo, and Élisabeth-Claude Jacquet de La Guerre. Each mini-documentary is accompanied by a companion video, in which a piece written by or composed for the featured musician is performed. The series ends with a bonus episode - a round-table discussion on what it means to the members and guests of Infusion Baroque to be a musician and a woman.
