Free baroque music concerts in Philadelphia Friday and Saturday

Last season’s smash-hit, never-heard-anything-like-it, brought-down-the-house modern premieres of large-scale orchestral music by Fasch just scratched the surface of this visionary maverick’s work. Tempesta celebrates his 250th anniversary with a brand-new program of ear-popping modern-day firsts.
