Amherst Early Music Festival Concert Series – Portrait of a Lady
August 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDTFree
Is Baroque style about formal elegance? Or about emotion, atmosphere, or drama? All of the above! After diving deep into rediscovered performance practices Sarah Cunningham and Adam Young (viols), Kevin Payne (theorbo), and Leon Schelhase (harpsichord) have found that music can be like impassioned and eloquent speech and can tell stories and paint pictures. Who is Marella D’Aubonne the imaginary lady in the picture and what story does this music tell? The violas, harpsichord, and theorbo will take on the role of this mysterious woman. And along with verbal narrative, we will unveil the life of the lady in the portrait. Music of Jean Baptiste Lully, Antoine Forqueray, and Marin Marais.
