A rising star of historically informed performance, Rachell Ellen Wong brings rare expressive nuance and refreshing vitality to her famously soft-spoken instrument of choice, the Baroque violin. Wong is a recipient of a prestigious 2020 Avery Fisher Career Grant, the only early-music specialist recognized in the award’s history. In her Cal Performances debut, Wong offers a program that includes a signature work, Biber’s Sonata No. 5; a solo arrangement of music from Tartini’s fiery The Devil’s Trill; and dazzling sonatas by Corelli, Leclair, Veracini, and Bach, accompanied by harpsichordist David Belkovski and cellist Coleman Itzkoff.

This performance is made possible, in part, by Nadine Tang and an Anonymous Patron Sponsor.

Run time for this concert is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes, including intermission, but not including any possible encores.
