SFEMS Baroque Workshop Faculty Concert

Date/Time: June 26, 2019, 7:30 p.m.

Promotional Materials
Take a musical journey across the alps to explore the vibrant music cultures of two rich,
interconnected, yet diverse cities in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries: Venice and
Hamburg. The overt expressiveness and influence of music-making in Venice on that of the
northern regions including Hamburg during the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries serve as
the background for many compositional developments and exciting stylistic trends. Seminal
Baroque composers Georg Philipp Telemann, influential in the musical life of Hamburg, and
Antonio Lucio Vivaldi, Giovanni Gabrieli, and Claudio Monteverdi, active in Venice, are just a
few examples on which this repertoire thrives. This program further dusts off the works of lesser-
known composers such as Johann Staden, Hieronymus Praetorius, and Johann Hermann Schein,
allowing the listener to discover new musical tastes, textures and styles. Become enraptured with
the diversity of sounds from these Baroque cities, including early brass, recorder, oboe, bassoon,
flute, strings, organ, harpsichord and voices all set perfectly within the sublime acoustic of
Sonoma’s Schroeder Hall.

Performers: Rita Lilly (voice), Aaron Sheehan (voice), David Wilson (violin), Carla Moore
(violin), Bruce Dickey (cornetto), Janet See (traverso), Kathryn Montoya (oboe), Cléa Galhano
(recorder), Anna Marsh (bassoon, dulcian), William Skeen (cello and viola da gamba), Nigel
North (lute and theorbo), Peter Sykes (organ), Linda Pearse (artistic director, sackbut), and more.
