FREE BAROQUE SUMMER CONCERT #2:
Baroque Beat – Latin Fiesta
Saturday, Sept. 23 at 5pm
Your Favorite Baroque Works on Latin American and Early Instruments
Job Salazar – violin and bombo, Carlos Boltes – viola and charango, Gonzalo Cortés – flute, quena, and zampoña, Christine Gevert – virginal and percussion
With renewed interpretations of Baroque classics, the ensemble presents some of J.S. Bach’s, Vivaldi’s, Corelli’s, Handel’s, and Purcell’s instrumental masterworks in a one-of-a-kind arrangement, creating a tapestry of global sounds. All four instrumentalists perform on Western traditional and Latin American folk instruments, and are equally at home in both styles. The ensemble creates a bridge between the Western European culture and the sounds of the New World. By celebrating the origins of Baroque music alongside the deeply captivating Latin American sounds and rhythms, a unique fusion of styles comes to life.
These concerts have been made possible in part with support from CT Humanities (CTH), and with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) from the Connecticut State Legislature.
