2018-2019 SEASON

Summertime Concert

This is our last concert before we take our vacation, at a new informal venue kindly offered to us for this occasion.

Saturday July 20 at 6:45pm at Berkeley Town HouseWednesday July 24 at 12 at Westminster Presbyterian Sacramento

I wanted a small intimate group (recorder, violin, gamba, harpsichord) with a strikingly big sound. So I pulled in some pieces from our Jonathan Shrank The Music concert (Bach and Corelli). If you are a fan of women in mythology, you will appreciate Telemann's serially published sonata in which each movement depicts one such heroine (Xantippe, Lucretia, Corinna, Clelia, Dido). Plus settings of my favorite ancient bass pattern - Romanesca - one for solo harpsichord by Frescobaldi, and one by Monteverdi intended for voices but which I gently coerced into an instrumental version for our very expressive players. And a little collective group improvisation so that you can witness how these old basses work (and that they are still very current).

No reservations for these concerts. Come early to be sure of a seat, and don't be late to Berkeley because this is a private space and the doors will close before the concert begins! Donations good (suggested $30, but no one turned away unless we can't fit you in the room).

Can't make this one but traveling to Sacramento? We will also do this program in the Capital City on Wed July 24 at 12 noon on the Westminster M.A.N series.
