Lautengalanterie: German Baroque Lute Duets
Somerville Museum, One Westwood Road (at Central St.)
Cost: Tickets: Gen: $20; Sr/Stu: $15
Performing: Timothy Burris and Olav Chris Henriksen, baroque lutes
Details: During the early baroque period, German lutenists embraced the new French baroque lute and its lyrical, expressive (yet intimate) musical style, but by the 18th century they had developed their own tradition – a much more outgoing kind of music. Timothy Burris and Olav Chris Henriksen will begin their concert with Johann Gumprecht’s French suite, then continue with Radolt’s musical experiments for two lutes, followed by a partita by Telemann. The concert will conclude with music in galant/early classical style, exemplified in sonatas by Corignani and Hagen. Of special interest is a recently-rediscovered concerto for two lutes by the great Silvius Leopold Weiss. Come hear the beautiful and seldom-heard sound of two baroque lutes together!
