Wabash Professor of Music Larry Bennett and the Indiana University Baroque Orchestra made musical history on February 22, reviving on the Salter Hall stage a masterpiece that had not performed for more than 260 years.
Bennett had rediscovered the piece during his research in Meiningen, Germany in 1995.
It was a triumphant performance, and one that was repeated at IU's Auer Hall a week later.
