Early Music Southwest is an international collaboration of baroque-music professionals who specialize in the performance of chamber music of the 17th and 18th centuries on original instruments. EMSW was established in 2000 by noted harpsichordist Christina Edelen, former faculty member at Baylor and the University of Houston; and orchestral cellist Frederick Edelen, member of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. The Edelens organize this delightful Sunday series for Rienzi.

"The Nut Doesn't Fall Far from the Tree" features Timothy Hester on fortepiano, Kevin Downs on cello, and Rebecca Troxler on flute. The program includes music by Ludwig van Beethoven and two of his pupils, Carl Czerny and Ferdinand Ries.
