8 pm concert • 7:30 pm pre-concert lecture
The Early Interval’s spring concert will explore the rich variety found in the vocal and instrumental music that was composed and performed in Florence, Venice, Ferrara, Rome and the other great musical centers of early Italy.
The program will include the music of the troubadours that made Italy their home after their expulsion from southern France; the lively music associated with the comedic and romantic players of the commedia dell’arte; music written under the patronage of the Medici family; a sampling of Italian dance music from the 14th through the 17th centuries; and elegant compositions from the dawn of the Italian Baroque. The Early Interval will perform vocally and on recorders, crumhorns, rackett, medieval and Renaissance harps, vielle, rebec, violas da gamba, chitarone, Renaissance and Baroque guitars, pipe and tabor and early percussion instruments.
The members of The Early Interval are Ron Cook, director, Jim Bates, Janice Cook, Tamara Seckel, Sean Ferguson and Lyz Liddell.
