The Weckmann Project began when seven Boston-based musicians got together to read the rarely played works of Matthias Weckmann, who wrote some of the most beautiful and difficult chamber music of the 17th century. After a wonderfully received inaugural concert last spring, the ensemble returns with more seventeenth century music, including works by Gabrielli, Schmelzer, Hammerschmidt, and of course, Weckmann! We take great delight in inviting you to our second set of concerts, to be held in Cambridge and Boston.
