Incredible Decades (seven-disc boxed set) (2019)

<em>Incredible Decades</em> (seven-disc boxed set)

The seventeenth edition of Music@Menlo LIVE illuminates the evolution of chamber music over three hundred years by focusing on seven Incredible Decades. Each volume explores an extraordinary chapter in which history’s most insightful composers chronicled the tectonic shifts in the world around them. Many of history’s finest composers have captured the spirit of their times in sound, and in this collection of recordings, Music@Menlo encapsulates the dynamism of both an art form and the cultural winds that powered its evolution during these Incredible Decades.
