Baroque Roots
1988, Trinity Presbyterian Church & Porter College UCSC, Santa Cruz, CA

  This music from Italy, Germany and Poland around the period of 1600-1650 represents the origin of modern orchestral combinations. It has the accessibility of Renaissance music and the exuberance of the emerging baroque style. The vitality and rich textures of this period are gorgeous! Featuring many seldom-heard works, some even transcribed directly from the original manuscripts, this concert featured composers who were celebrated throughout Europe in their day, yet who are not familiar to most modern audiences. They included Brade, Picchi, Jarzebski, Castello, Cesare, degl'Antonii, Kindermann, Legrenzi and Biber.
