Houston Early Music 2010-2011 SEASON
Music from the Middle Ages through the 18th Century
The renowned Catalan ensembles Hespèrion XXI and La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Ensemble Tembembe of Mexico under the direction of the incomparable Jordi Savall, perform a musical dialogue from the Old Spain, the Mexican baroque and the living “Husteca” and “Jarocho” traditions. www.aaronconcert.com/savall.html
For our Christmas offering, we present the exciting young American ensemble in a concert of carols, hymns, lullabies and instrumental pieces from Renaissance England, France, Spain, Italy and Germany. Featuring the talents some of the foremost early musicians performing works from humble pipers’ tunes to grand Renaissance polyphony with voices, shawms, sackbut, recorders, and bagpipes.
Trio Sonnerie, Monica Huggett’s longest running and smallest group, comes from the UK to present the choicest pick of Europe’s chamber music from the Baroque period. Biber’s astonishing “Mystery Sonatas” for virtuoso violin contrast with exquisitely refined French music for viola da gamba and sprightly tunes from Jacobean England. Of course, the Harmony of Nations wouldn’t be complete without JS Bach, here represented by a magnificent sonata for violin and harpsichord. www.sonnerie.org.uk
In a return trip to town, the dazzling ensemble presents a fascinating entertainment for recorder quartet, singer and narrator. The story of the king and his six wives is told with music and words joined artfully together – Music from the 16th and 17th centuries, contemporary pieces, a scene from Shakespeare, letters from King Henry and Anne Boleyn, and original verse. www.flanders-recorder-quartet.be
