Perhaps because it is so distant and its style so ingratiating and universally pleasing, the Baroque period inspired many imposters. Leaving the baby on the doorstep of a good family to give him a better chance in life, many composers attributed their works to a more famous composer. Fakes unveiled will include Frescobaldi's Toccata (by Cassado), Couperin's Five Concert Pieces (by Bazelere) and C.P.E. Bach's Andante (by Cassadeseus). In addition to these gems (rhinestones), ACRONYM, the 12-member string band, will take us back further in time and introduce some authentic forgotten masterpieces of the pre-Baroque and Baroque eras, by Viennese and German composers. Much of their programming is devoted to modern premieres of works newly transcribed from manuscript, previously unpublished, unrecorded and unheard since the early 17th century. Neo, quasi, retro, faux—never mind, this is the real thing!

ACRONYM Baroque String Band; Kivie Cahn-Lipman, director; Yehuda Hanani, cello
