Ars Lyrica's season opener spotlights Artistic Director Matthew Dirst along with Sam Houston State professor Mario Aschauer in favorite concertos for two harpsichords by J. S.

This program of musical duels also features Ars Lyrica core string players in a bit of tuneful fencing plus a sonorous suite, both by masters of the Austrian Baroque.
