2019-2020 Concert Season

eine kleine kammermusik

September 28, 2019, at 7:00 PM

Germany’s influence was crucial in the evolution of Baroque music.  As the Italian influences spread north to Germany, German composers often moved to Italy to study and compose.  Germans were not without their own influence, though, as their strict musical forms helped bring about iconic baroque forms such as the dance suite and the church cantata.  From Buxtehude to Bach, the Germans brought together the musical world in a way defined a style period—and in a way that defined present-day music theory.

Flye Care and Anguish

February 22, 2020, at 7:30 PM

The time of the English Restoration not only brought political changes and an expansion of trade, but also a surge in literary and artistic works.  While the German-born George Frideric Handel was one of the leading composers of the period, English composers such as Henry Purcell, John Blow, and Thomas Arne were creating iconic English works for ballad operas and the theater, solidifying England’s role in entertaining the masses who hungered to be both listeners and performers.  From the lute songs of Thomas Campion to Arne’s “Rule Britannia,” the English helped popularize music through the formation of choral societies, private in-home performances, and music festivals.

17th Century Music for Recorder & Sackbut

with guest artist Erik Schmalz, sackbut

June 25, 2020, at 7:00 PM

Erik Schmalz, famed sackbut player with Dark Horse Consort, joins Amethyst Baroque in this concert of 17th century Italian music by Frescobaldi, Merula, and others.  The florid musical lines typify the time—but so do the compositional forms that predate and prepare us for the solo sonata and trio sonata that would be common just a few decades later.
