The next performance in the 2018 Salish Sea Early Music Festival features a variety of musical styles of 18th-century Europe. It includes Carrie Krause on Baroque violin; Jeffrey Cohan on Baroque flute; and John Lenti on theorbo and Baroque guitar.

The event, titled “The Able Virtuoso,” will be at 1 p.m., Sunday, May 20 at Brickworks, located at 150 Nichols St. in Friday Harbor. Suggested donations are $15, $20 or $25 and 18 and under are free.

Johann Mattheson’s “The Able Virtuoso,” published in Hamburg in 1720, sets the tone for this program of trio sonatas inspired by Corelli and the idea that Italian, French and German styles might be fused in an integrated musical style.

Music featured in this performance are trio sonatas for violin and flute with theorbo, which is a very long-necked lute, and baroque guitar by Johann Sebastian Bach, Archangelo Corelli, Pietro Locatelli, Antoine Dornel and Joseph Bodin de Boismortier.
