Arizona Early Music presents: ACRONYM, Dreams of the Wounded Musketeer
November 13 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm MST$30.00
Dreams of the Wounded Musketeer: Featuring music by Valentini, Bertali, Schmelzer, Rosenmüller, and others
An imperial military trumpeter, a member of the Kameradschaft, has been shot. As he lies dying, the musician-musketeer’s life in Vienna passes before his eyes in a hazy dream. In his fever, he recalls the madness of the music of his childhood, as the dissonant seconda prattica swept north of the Alps. He relives the swirling wildness of the stylus phantasticus that shaped the music of his adult years. At the last, flashing back to the battle that shattered him, he ascends to heaven.
Baroque band ACRONYM—an “outstanding young early- music string ensemble” (The New Yorker)—is dedicated to giving modern premieres of the wild instrumental music of the seventeenth century. Playing with “consummate style, grace, and unity of spirit” (The New York Times), the group, formed in 2012, has released eight critically acclaimed CDs since 2014. ACRONYM’s musicians can be heard in Apollo’s Fire, Tafelmusik, Les Arts Florissants, Handel and Haydn Society, Chicago Lyric Opera, International Contemporary Ensemble, and The English Concert.
