Critically acclaimed ensemble LeStrange Viols presents “Hold Fast: Music of the Elizabethan Avant-Garde,” a program that explores the unusual musical experimentation of the late 16th century. From pieces whose metrical complexity recalls the ars subtillior to ones whose systematic simplification prefigures the minimalism of Phillip Glass, Elizabethan composers used the medium of the viol consort to investigate musical “what if?” questions.
