Linda Melsted and Courtney Kuroda

Violin Duo Music for two violins by JS Bach, Telemann, Leclair, Corrette, and more.

One violin is pretty nice but TWO violins—?? Some of the most fun music has been composed for two violins and Seattle Baroque violinists Linda Melsted and Courtney Kuroda will explore the duet repertoire from the Baroque to the 20th century. Performing music by J.S. Bach, Telemann, Corrette, and Bartók they will also provide background comments about the music and instruments they are playing. This event, presented by Early Music Seattle and the Seattle Baroque Orchestra, will take place Sunday, June 30, 2019 at 2:00 pm at the Renton Library, 100 Mill Ave S, Renton, WA 98057.
