NOTABLE IN THIS ISSUE:
Love in a Many Splendored Zarzuela
Rachel Penn Adams describes how the Orchestra of New Spain treats its Dallas audience to a Spanish Baroque entertainment, staged as if presented in the spectacular theater of the old Moorish Alcázar.
Excerpt: “Staging rehearsals revealed the spontaneity of Gustavo Tambascio as a director. He comes to each work with an overall plan. But then to watch him call on the distinctive talents of each actor is incredibly exhilirating.”
A Banquet of Music 40 Years in the Serving
The roots of Baroque orchestras in the United States can be traced back to the first concerts of Boston Baroque in a time when the Tea Party was only an event in Colonial history. By Keith Powers
Excerpt: “The beginnings of Boston Baroque grew naturally out of the atmosphere of the early ’70s, which encouraged exploration and experimentation.”
The 300th anniversary of the birth of Bach’s star pupil is the occasion for musicians to explore his varied chamber music and his penchant for “having fun with it”. By Rebecca Pechefsky
Excerpt: “In so much of Krebs’s music, there is a rhythmic vitality and willingness to play with the melodic and harmonic material in a way I can only describe as simply ‘having fun with it.’”
