T-Rex and Treble Clefs: Re-Creating Sound Worlds Past
Join Dr. Lindsey Strand-Polyak as we talk about how we research the sounds and musical practices of different times and places, and what historical items may be hiding in your own instrument cases or music folders. She’ll then be joined by Baroque Music Montana’s Carrie Krause and they’ll perform Mozart’s Duo for Violin and Viola and discuss their own historical inquiries.
