Claudio Monteverdi: The Man and His Music
(A Special Three Notch'd Road Ensemble Pre-Concert Lecture)
Music lovers and novices, you're invited to hear Fiona Hughes (TNR violinist and Artistic Director) and Peter Walker (TNR bass soloist) speak about the music and achievements of Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643). The expressive power and structure of baroque music owes much to the work of this famous Italian priest-composer from Cremona, whose impact on the subsequent development of both sacred and secular music is unparalleled. This lecture will include a few live demonstrations, so come, listen and enjoy!
If the lecture leaves you wanting more, then on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 7:30pm, at First Presbyterian Church, 500 Park St., Three Notch'd Road will offer a special 450th commemorative "Monteverdi: Venetian Splendor" concert, featuring a larger, mixed consort of instruments and voices, including soprano Teresa Wakim. Tickets available online and at the door: Adults $20; Students are FREE.
