III. BAROQUE INSPIRATIONS:
Old & New Music for Early Instruments

Saturday, March 15, 7:30pm ~ UCSC Music Ctr Recital Hall*
(map)
Featuring: Robert Strizich (composer) with Lux Musica

Opulent French music from the court of Louis XIV played off against the new music it has inspired: Linda Burman-Hall This concert features Marin Marais' La Gamme en forme de petit opera (The Scale in the form of a Little Opera) juxtaposed with the world premiere of Robert Strizich's La Gamme Nouvelle, an experimental work for 'the new scale' of 24 tones. Similarly, Strizich's Tombeau for Baroque flute and harpsichord is inspired by Marais' beloved La Sonnerie, evoking a carillon once heard all over Paris. This landmark event is made possible by a grant from the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music's Musical Grant Program. (Photo: Linda Burman-Hall, by Shmuel Thaler/SC Sentinel)

V. WIND POWER:
Virtuoso Music for Baroque Flutes

Saturday, May 10, 7:30pm ~ UCSC Music Ctr Recital Hall*
(map)
Featuring: Claudia Liliana Gantivar (recorders) with Lars Johannesson and Alissa Roedig (early flutes)

Sweeping across Baroque Europe, powerful winds of change transformed musical style several times. In the 1600s the early Italian style blew north to France and Germany, influencing the later writing of J.S. Bach and Handel. Tastes changed again in the late 1700s as the ornamental baroque style yielded to breezy rococo and preclassic writing, as heard in the works of C.P.E. Bach. Traveling with the times, the flauto and the traverso have left behind a trail of brilliant wind sonatas for us to enjoy centuries later. A meet-the-artist-reception for donors and subscribers follows the event. (Photo: Claudia Liliana Gantivar)
