American Classical Orchestra - Anterior Motives

Concert starts at 8:00PM


All of the great masters were indebted to their

predecessors: Bach to Buxtehude, Handel to Caldara.

Anterior Motives explores stylistic similarities and

progression from the early to the high baroque.

The spirit morphs from the dark and sinewy Maddelena

to the ebullient Brandenburg and Cantata 30.
