CUMBERLAND — Mountainside Baroque will launch its ninth season, a salute to dualities in music that is titled “Two by 2: Music in Contrast,” on Oct. 6 at 4 p.m. at the Shrine of SS. Peter and Paul, 125 Fayette St.

“Music for Doubles” will feature both double instrumental concerti and double choir works. Vivaldi’s concerto for violin and violoncello will highlight renowned violinist Cynthia Roberts and international cellist Allen Whear. In addition, the program includes an unusual concerto for recorder and viola da gamba by Georg Philipp Telemann featuring Sarah Lynn and Arnie Tanimoto.

Also on the program will be one of Archangelo Corelli’s famous “Concerti Grossi” as well as choral works by Palestrina, Cavalli and Rosenmüeller. The performance will be preceded at 3:30 p.m. by a talk about the concert music and the composers. A PDF of the complete printed program is available in advance on the MBQ website, www.mountainsidebaroque.org.
