Flights of Fancy
The early seventeenth century was a period in which there was a widespread belief in the magic of music, and in music's power to control human passions - now harsh,
now sweet, now cheerful, and now sad - in accordance with the will of the performer. This programme features entertaining, imaginative, and uncommonly beautiful music
composed with these goals in mind. Included will be striking chamber works by Biagio Marini and Tarquinio Merula, haunting vocal monodies by Claudio Monteverdi,
sprightly dances by Gasparo Zanetti and Santino Garsi, inspired improvisations on seventeenth-century grounds, and much more.
