Boston Baroque Releases Biber's THE MYSTERY SONATAS on Boston Baroque Live

Boston Baroque is introducing Biber's The Mystery Sonatas as the next full-length concert release on Boston Baroque Live. Starting today, audiences can watch the performance, featuring GRAMMY®-nominated concertmaster Christina Day Martinson, on the Boston Baroque Live platform at free for 30 days.

Heinrich Biber's The Mystery Sonatas, rarely performed in its entirety, depicts each of the mysteries of the rosary. Using six baroque violins tuned individually for each movement, Boston Baroque concertmaster and soloist Christina Day Martinson performs the entire tour-de-force work in a live performance recorded just weeks prior to the commercial recording of The Mystery Sonatas that got her nominated for a GRAMMY®. Boston Baroque musicians Michael Unterman, cello, Michael Leopold, theorbo and baroque guitar, and Music Director Martin Pearlman, harpsichord and organ, are also featured on this performance. For detailed information about the program, read Music Director Martin Pearlman's Program Notes.

This month, Boston Baroque also continues its interactive virtual event series moderated by Music Director Martin Pearlman on Thursday, October 22 with "The Art of Tuning: Christina Day Martinson and Julia McKenzie on Biber's The Mystery Sonatas." Boston Baroque's entire 2020-2021 Virtual Season also includes exclusive behind-the-scenes talks and newly-produced documentary short films featuring our world-renowned musicians and soloists, produced by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Nathaniel Hansen.

During what will be an unprecedented concert season for all arts organizations, Boston Baroque is committed to finding innovative and safe ways to share our music with audiences across Massachusetts and around the world.
