The Faux and the Fabulous: Acronym Baroque String Ensemble

When: Sat., May 12, 6-8 p.m.

Perhaps because it is so distant and its style so ingratiating and universally pleasing, the Baroque period inspired many imposters. Leaving the baby on the doorstep of a good family to give him a better chance in life, many composers attributed their works to a more famous composer. Fakes unveiled will include Frescobaldi’s Toccata (by Cassado), Couperin’s Five Concert Pieces (by Bazelere) and C.P.E. Bach’s Andante (by Cassadeseus). ACRONYM, the 12-member string band, will also take us back further in time and introduce some authentic forgotten masterpieces of the pre-Baroque and Baroque eras.

Price: $50 orchestra/$27 balcony/$15 students
