Event Description
CB - From Battles to Ballets @ Synod Hall

In memory of Emily Norman Davidson.

This program of seventeenth-century music deploys a veritable army of musicians. A band of two baroque trumpets, nine strings, continuo, and percussion explores the exhilarating, programmatic music of armed conflict known as battalia, in contrast with the beauty and charm of baroque dance as portrayed in whimsical balletti. Music of Heinrich Biber, Philipp Jakob Rittler, and Johann Heinrich Schmelzer.

With guests:

Shelby Lewis, Chris Carillo (natural trumpets)
Evan Few, Kristen Linfante, Paul Miller,
Adam Pearl (harpsichord  & organ)
Danny Mallon (percussion)

featuring a battalion of additional string players for Biber’s epic Battalia à 10
