Albany Consort Baroque Micro-Orchestra Repaints the Past

January 14, 2018
3:00 pm
First Presbyterian Palo Alto

Vivaldi arranged some of his own concertos for this exact group, but not Winter, one of my all time favorites. Bach's instrumental solo and ensemble music found its way into his cantatas, but never the other way round. Why not? Monteverdi took a chord pattern and used it as the basis of a beautiful extended madrigal - we want it back!

Thus, this concert, featuring four of Jonathan's arrangements for this group of six musicians that will amaze you with its rich sound. Half strings and half wind - the whole baroque orchestra in miniature.

All peninsula concerts this time. And we will be livestreaming the Sunday concert in case you are not in the area or simply not able to get to it - watch this space for details. And if you do get to the Sunday concert, we will be selling instant recordings of the concert right after the concert. As you may know, Jonathan is not a huge fan of premeditated recording, but this is an idea he has always wanted to try out.
