Sarasa Ensemble: Dynamic Duos-Partnerships of the Baroque

November 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Sarasa Chamber Music Ensemble presents “Dynamic Duos: Partnerships of the Baroque” at the Brattleboro Music Center Friday, Nov. 29. The 7:30 p.m. concert will spotlight some of the many partnerships that sprang up during the Baroque era between famous violinist-composers and their favorite cellists, producing a wealth of instrumental sonata repertoire.

Performing will be Alison Bury, violin; Dick Earle, oboe; Jennifer Morsches, piccolo cello; Timothy Merton, cello; and Robin Bigwood, theorbo. The program includes Vandini’s Sonata in A minor for cello and basso continuo; S.L. Weiss’ Tombeau sur la Mort de M. Comte d’Logy; Tartini’s Sonata in g minor, Op. 1 No. 10 ‘Didone abbandonata’ for violin and basso continuo; P. Boni’s Sonata XII in B minor for cello and basso continuo; Corelli’s Sonata in D major for violin, Op.5 No. 1; and J.G. Graun’s Trio Sonata in F major.

The Sarasa Chamber Music Ensemble has received critical acclaim for its “informed and impassioned music-making” and is hailed for its “great clarity” and “irresistible energy.” Drawing on a pool of more than one hundred musicians from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia, the ensemble varies in size according to the particular type of program with repertoire ranging from the 17th to the 21st centuries. Vivaldi Sonata in C minor for oboe and basso continuo

General admission is $20, and $10 for students. Tickets may be purchased from the Brattleboro Music Center at 802-257-4523, online at bmcvt.org, or at the door.
