The early Baroque was a time of experimentation, when stylistic elements of Renaissance polyphony met and mingled with the developing practice of basso continuo. England and Italy saw a blossoming interest in virtuosic instrumental music which later became 18th-c. suite and sonata forms. Contrasting moods and tempi of these early works would later develop into standardized Baroque sonatas with their own florid style of melodrama. Loosely-organized instrumental suites have one foot in the older world of consort music and familiar dance forms, and the other in the new, filling out the harmonies with a continuo section. Mystic River Baroque employs a broad palette of timbres and characters to highlight the colorful, mercurial music of Castello, Cima, Locke and others.
Highlights from this calendar are included in the weekly E-Notes email newsletter (Tuesdays). Selections are made based on variety of event types and geographic regions.
