In Stile Moderno & Seven Times Salt

February 23, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

We welcome Seven Times Salt and In Stile Moderno, together in concert.

The program explores the many guises of the ground bass from “Greensleeves” to “La Follia” and beyond. As the Renaissance era gave way to the early Baroque, music from English consorts and Italian dances to Spanish divisions and broadside ballads all relied on grounds—repeating bass lines—as a common currency in a time of dramatic musical change. You’ll hear favorite pieces from this beloved genre, ranging from traditional grounds such as the rustic bergamasca, the lively ciaconna, and the mournful passacaglia, to the complex and elevated ground-bass writing of Henry Purcell. Also along the way are works by Monteverdi, Lawes, Marini, Ortiz, selections from the The Division Violin and The English Dancing Master, and original arrangements by Chicago-based violinist David Douglass, with whom we premiered this program in 2005.
