Stile Moderno:

New music from 17th-century Italy

Saturday, April 27, 8:00 PM | Pre-concert talk at 7:00 PM
Synod Hall, Oakland

Robert Mealy & Julie Andrijeski, violins and directors
Greg Ingles, trombone
John Lenti, theorbo & guitar
Avi Stein, organ & harpsichord

Quicksilver’s Stile Moderno examines modern music as it was invented by virtuoso instrumental composers in 17th-century Italy. It is also an exploration of those composers' new invention, the sonata: a pure instrumental work, with no agenda but the imagination of the composer. Led by co- directors and violin virtuosi Julie Andrijeski and Robert Mealy, this program of “new music” is virtuosic, experimental, unexpected, and deeply moving. Music by Castello, Fontana, Merula, Marini and more.

Violinist Julie Andrijeski will give a pre-concert talk at 7:00 PM at which she will discuss Stile Moderno vs. Stile Antico, typical instrument combinations, and Quicksilver's approach to playing this music.


Note: Lutenist John Lenti will be in place of Charles Weaver
