FRANK NOWELL AND JUBAL FULKS

Among Equals”

Harpsichordist Frank Nowell (Artistic Director, Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado) and violinist Jubal Fulks (Leader, Sinfonia Spirituosa Sacramento) join forces to present a concert of solo and duo works by JS Bach, Corelli, and Handel. This program explores the breadth of possibilities for each instrument as they exchange musical roles. Ranging from unaccompanied to accompaniment to primary voice, they work together to form a seamless and important combination of sound which exists in compositions from the baroque era to those of today.
