Continuo

Continuo, also known as Basso Continuo, is associated with music of the Baroque period.  Miles Hoffman discusses why the term Continuo refers not to an instrument, but to a part within a composition.

A Minute with Miles is a production of ETV Radio made possible by the JM Smith Corporation.

Miles Hoffman is the founder and violist of the American Chamber Players, with whom he regularly tours the United States, and the Virginia I. Norman Distinguished Visiting Professor of Chamber Music at the Schwob School of Music, in Columbus, Georgia. He has appeared as viola soloist with orchestras across the country, and his solo performances on YouTube have received well over 700,000 views.
