EARLY MUSIC NEW YORK

May 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

| $40

HAROMONIE UNIVERSELLE ~ National Styles Unfurled

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Central Park West at 68th St.

Saturday, May 2, 2015 at 7:30 PM

Welcoming spring, EARLY MUSIC NEW YORK first chair players perform favorite 17th-century chamber works by Jean-Baptiste Lully – FRANCE, Gaspar Sanz – SPAIN, Henry Purcell – ENGLAND, Heinrich Biber, Johann Schmelzer, and Johann Joseph Fux – AUSTRIA, Dietrich Becker – GERMANY, Arcangelo Corelli, Giuseppe Torelli – ITALY, each to illustrate blossoming national styles and performed at the acoustically superb Beaux-Arts venue in Lincoln Square.

The title of the program is borrowed from Marin Mersenne’s Traité de l’harmonie universelle (also referred to as Harmonie universelle) of 1636. His treatise deals with the theory of music and music instruments, and is regarded as a source of information on seventeenth-century music. For tonight’s purposes, the title is meant to suggest the development of national styles – commonalities and differences. To this end, we sample compositions of noted composers from the major nations of the latter seventeenth century – forerunners to the ‘High Baroque.’

Performing Artists – Aaron Brown – violin, Rachel Evans – viola, Daniel Lee – violin, Daphna Mor – recorders (flauti dolci & flute de voix), Jason Priset – theorbo & baroque guitar, Frederick Renz – harpsichord & chamber organ, Ezra Seltzer – violoncello.
